Program Overview

LondonThis is a biennial program and will be offered in spring 2019.

The Music Foreign Study Program provides an excellent opportunity for students to combine the hands-on study of music with an intensive, experiential exposure to musical performance while living in London. The program is open to instrumentalists, vocalists and composers, as well as to students whose focus is on music history, theory, or ethnomusicology.

Courses offered include Music 70: "Perspectives in Music Performance" (taught by the FSP director), which brings together the many diverse aspects of musical performance through attendance of more than thirty public performances; Music 71: "The History of Music in England," (taught by the eminent musicologist Prof. Roderick Swanston); and Music 87: "Special Studies in Music Abroad," consisting of weekly individual lessons with UK professionals. Student musicians will reap the benefits of a term in London, the undisputed musical capital of Europe. The opportunity to attend concerts and rehearsals, meet performers and artists, and experience firsthand the vibrant musical traditions of London offers unique learning opportunities outside the classroom.
Participant selection will be based on each applicant's interest in music and in musical performance, as demonstrated by past study.  Enrollment is limited to 16.

The FSP is operated in partnership with IES. IES is one of the nation’s most reputable study abroad providers and is well-known for their continued dedication to health and safety and academic rigor.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for this program by clicking here. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
