Study Abroad

Tufts in London Program

The Tufts in London Program offers Tufts undergraduates the opportunity for a year's study at Britain's prestigious University College London (UCL). Proud as we are of our own courses, our faculty members encourage our sophomore majors to consider this opportunity. The philosophy department usually sponsors one or two majors participating in the program by offering a small stipend to be used towards the purchase of books. In deciding which students to sponsor, the department will consider both how the program will contribute to a student's intellectual development and the student's academic achievement at Tufts.

Tufts in London is a one-year program. Applicants are expected to have a minimum GPA of 3.3 with an average of at least 3.3 in the major. Students with GPAs of 3.0, but whose grade points in their majors alone average 3.3, may be admitted. Students applying to the UCL Philosophy Department must have taken two courses in philosophy at Tufts.

For general information about the program, please see the Tufts in London webpage.
