Study Abroad

Do you dream of spending a semester or summer in London, and immersing yourself in Britain’s rich cultural heritage and way of life?

Now you can study for credit alongside our undergraduate students at City & Guilds of London Art School.


City & Guilds of London (CGLAS) is a small, specialist art school and we’re proud of our outstanding reputation for excellence in the traditional skills of architectural stone carving, woodcarving and gilding, contemporary fine art, and the conservation of historic objects. See our list of Study Abroad courses here. There’s a thread that runs deep through all our courses, and that’s our belief in the importance of learning through making. That means that as a semester student here, you’ll always get the teaching, facilities, and support you need to get the most out of your time in London.


You’ll learn through making, but you’ll learn through walking, talking together, and experiencing London too.

We think one of the best ways of teaching the history of British architecture, say, is to go and look at British architecture, not just sit in a lecture theatre and tell you about it. Come prepared to spend the start of a chilly Wednesday afternoon in a London church, the first of a tour of iconic buildings by greats like Inigo Jones, Hawksmoor and Sir Christopher Wren. You might get cold that day, but you’ll never forget what you learned.


It takes a lot for you to step outside the everyday and come to London, we know that. But we want you to go even further. Meet British students and start to immerse yourself in the British student way of life. That can happen at City & Guilds of London Art School because we’re small and it’s easy to make friends. We want you to work hard and be ambitious. And we also think you’ll get most out of your time here if you travel in your free time and see some of the UK’s quieter corners, as well as our European neighbours. We’ll provide support and guidance every step of the way.


City & Guilds of London Art School is what we call a real art school. Spend a semester or summer with us and find out what we mean by that. Apply to study abroad here and make your dreams come true.
