Living in ISA housing will give you the opportunity to experience aspects of the British lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average tourist. Uncovering the uniqueness of your surroundings will help you to feel right at home. No matter which type of housing you choose, you will commute to class as most locals do, via the underground (aka the Tube), the overground, public bus, or walking. With an open and adaptable mind, the experience of living in another culture can be highly rewarding. 

We strive to match your housing preferences with our available accommodations, however, housing preference requests cannot be guaranteed.

You may elect to secure housing independently. If you select this option, you will receive a discount equal to the housing portion of the program price.



The excursions allow you to explore the diverse, distinct, and gorgeous landscape of the United Kingdom (and potentially surrounding countries) that you may not have the chance to visit on your own. While abroad, you will have the chance to go on weekend trips, day trips, and optional trips.
