The Cal Poly in London program
The Cal Poly in London study abroad program was Cal Poly’s inaugural faculty-led study abroad program that began in 1984. This flagship program has had a long-standing tradition of excellence and continues to be one of Cal Poly’s most sought after study abroad opportunities by both students and faculty. With London as one of the world’s great cultural and economic centers, the program offers courses that use the city as a laboratory to experience art, theatre, music, science, history, and more. The six-week summer program
offers students twelve Cal Poly units

The third course, ISLA 316 London: From Roman Colony to World Capital, is taught by a British faculty member arranged through our long-time service provider, FIE: Foundation for International Education.
