London Study Center

Accent's London

Our Neighborhood

Bedford Square is a late 18th-century garden square in the heart of Bloomsbury — the eponymous home of the Bloomsbury Group of English writers, artists,
and intellectuals who included Virginia Woolf,
John Maynard Keynes, and E. M. Forster. Today Bloomsbury is London’s university district with
easy walking distance to the University of London, the British Museum, and the British Library.

The Study Center

Just steps from the British Museum, Accent London occupies a beautifully restored, elegant Georgian building with original shutters, moldings, and fireplaces. We actively collaborate with our Bedford Square neighbors including the Architectural Association School of Architecture, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Yale University Press, Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, and constituent colleges of the University of London.

Global Learning in London

Each year, the London team supports more than 50 customized study abroad programs. Our partners include the University of California Education Abroad Program, Michigan State University, University of Southern California, Washington University in St. Louis, Colgate University, Arizona State University and many more. Academic highlights include:

  • London as a global hub for the study of health and disease, including an extensive network of local faculty and researchers and innovative opportunities in experiential learning related to public and community health, health inequalities and epidemiology.
  • Historical and contemporary perspectives on the global city, considering education, policing, transport and healthcare, with an extensive network of speakers from public and private sectors.
  • Deep networks for semester and short-term programs related to communications disciplines, including Journalism, PR and political communication, and advertising.
