Further information about the BU London Internship Program specific to Wheaton College students

Wheaton College is committed to providing students with opportunities to broaden their understanding and vision beyond the borders of this campus and this country. We work in collaboration with carefully selected partner institutions around the world to support our students as they prepare to study abroad and while they are overseas. Students must apply to Wheaton's Center for Global Education as well as the institution through which they plan to study abroad. The most up-to-date information can be found on the program provider's website above. 
                      
Application Tips:
Early application is encouraged as BU reviews applications on a rolling admissions basis.

Program Dates:
Fall Semester: late August to mid-December                              Spring Semester: mid-January to late April

Courses & Credits:
During the Core Phase students take the required core course for their track to prepare for their internships, and one elective course. During the internship phase they intern full-time, four days a week, while enrolled in a weekly elective course. In total they receive 16 semester hours or 4.0 Wheaton credits. 

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Students must obtain approval from a Wheaton academic department in order to receive academic credit for the internship seminar and experience. Students may not participate in the program without this approval and approval of all academic components and seminars.

Not all internship areas and related courses fall within liberal arts disciplines and will not be approved for academic credit by Wheaton College.

Housing & Meals:
Housing is in furnished apartments within walking distance of the BU London Academic Center. Flats vary in size (from two to 13 occupants), configuration, and style of decoration, but most consist of shared bedrooms, bath/shower room, and a living/dining room with cooking facilities. Telephone and Internet access are provided in each of the apartments.

Budget Information:
Students studying abroad will continue to pay Wheaton tuition. Students are not charged Wheaton room and board, or the Wheaton technology, laundry, or student activities fees while on a study abroad program. Wheaton will, in turn, pay the program for all tuition and academic fees and international insurance. Students will pay costs directly to their study abroad program. Please note that this does not include a meal plan. Student's housing will include a full kitchen for meal preparation and storage. Students will book and pay for their own flights.

Fees billed by Wheaton will be charged to students on their regular Wheaton College student account during regular billing cycles (July/December). 

Federal, state, Wheaton need-based and merit scholarships will be applied to these charges for Wheaton-approved programs. Students must consult with the Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) for a comprehensive review of their aid. If a student receives aid beyond the cost of Wheaton tuition, they can request a refund through SFS. This can in turn be used to pay their study abroad program for housing expenses.

Please do your research as housing and meal costs vary greatly from program to program. This Budget Worksheet can help you estimate the total costs of your program. Refer to your BU program's website for an overview of all additional expenses, which may include visas, international cell phones, and discretionary expenses.
