The Foundation for International Education - Faculty-led Programs in London:
Faculty-led programs have a number of important benefits of which include faculty development, the opportunity to integrate study abroad experience into the home curriculum, and the capacity to generate enthusiasm for international education on campus.

There are, also, potentially significant risks and problems that FIE can resolve for U.S. institutions considering study abroad in London. The benefits of working with FIE are not limited simply to risk-avoidance, however. FIE does create a plethora of opportunities available to faculty that cannot be easily identified from the U.S.A.

  • Logistics

    With operational headquarters and staff in London, FIE makes effective and efficient local arrangements from group arrival to departure, including transfers to and from the airport, orientation, central London housing, extra-curricular activities and so on. Co-curricular planning by both FIE's academic and student life team, in conjunction with the incoming visiting faculty well in advance of the program start date, allows the program to function effectively as soon as students and visiting faculty arrive in London
  • Security

    Students will benefit from 24-hour emergency support as well as from services of resident assistants and an experienced student life team. In addition, FIE integrates comprehensive international insurance coverage into all its programmes. FIEs orientation program draws upon local knowledge and is a particularly effective way of maximizing studentssafety while they are in London. This is a key factor when, in practice, many students may be overseas for the first time and may also be in an urban environment that is deeply unfamiliar to them.
  • Local knowledge

    However well informed and effective the faculty leader may be, it is impossible to keep up-to-date on the myriad of events and activities that the life of London offers. The FIE staff spends a great deal of their time maintaining contact and monitoring these opportunities. In conjunction with the faculty leader, FIE can open up the full potential of life in the city in areas and fields that are not easily accessible under normal circumstances.
  • Academic

    Using full-time academic staff and a distinguished pool of advisors, FIE works with faculty leaders to ensure that students benefit from access to major developments in social, cultural and political life. Faculty leaders are given office space, a cell phone and a computer to enable them to better manage their program. FIEs Study Center enables classes to be held in excellent, fully-equipped classrooms and gives students access to computer facilities 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The use of FIEs UK adjunct faculty lends itself to another important component of cultural immersion.
  • Immersion

    FIE offers students the chance to enjoy the facilities of a central London university, enabling them to make contact with other students from a wide variety of backgrounds and countries. In addition, FIE offers opportunities to experience weekend home-stays with British families as well as to participate in volunteer projects. Formal academic internships can also be arranged for participants. In addition, FIE arranges social and cultural events that enable students to interact with others on FIE programs and to experience the exciting environments of contemporary London.
