Welcome to AHA International's London site


Our Summer Communications students on the set of the One Show at the BBC

Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing Hamlet in summer 2015 at the Barbican. See article here. Alas we were unable to obtain tickets on their release earlier this month (we started off at 31,000th in the queue so didn't stand a chance). We'll try again when the next lot is released!



"I can't put into words what an amazing time I had. I learned so much from my classes and my host family. The program is outstanding and I will recommend it to other students. The excursions in and outside of London were all amazing. We got to experience almost everything guidebooks recommend you see when you travel to London as a part of our program. Wonderful!"

Latest News...

 

 

We are delighted to announce the appointment of a brand new Director of London Programmes.

Dr Susie Thomas took the helm here at AHA London earlier this year. Susie may be familiar to some of you as our literature tutor, teaching classes on the British Novel. She is also an active and highly-regarded academic and author, so we are very lucky to have her on board.

Exciting times!

Everyday London
Whilst it's almost a sin not to visit some of the famous sights of London, that touristy element is not really what this great city is about...

Studying with AHA provides you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in 'everyday London' because you live here and work here, and by the end of your course, we hope you will be able to call it home!

_________

The AHA London Centre is perfectly located to make the most of all London has to offer: we are a 10-minute walk from the British Museum; 15 minutes from the British Library, financial district, St Paul's Cathedral and the West End. We are 5 minutes from 3 underground 'tube' stations (Holborn, Russell Square and Chancery Lane) and a 15-minute walk from Kings Cross and St Pancras International train stations (direct train travel to the continent via Eurostar)

See this map for exact proximity!

_________

We're quite a peaceful bunch here in the UK, and this newly-released study seems to prove it! See the UK Peace Index.
