Program Overview

UCL-HistoryNowhere else in the English-speaking world can Dartmouth students enjoy such a uniquely rich combination of historic and academic resources as is concentrated in London. The city's history over two millennia, its archives, museums, libraries, and built environment allow this program to offer experiences in the study of history that are unavailable on campus.

Students take History 95.01: "London in History," that surveys the history of the city from its Roman origins through its rise to become one of the world's global capitals of the 21st century.  History 95.02: "History Study Abroad" is an opportunity to join British students in a history course at London's premier university, University College London.  History 97.90: "Independent Field Research," each student's individual research project, is the centerpiece of the program. Using London's abundant resources to explore British, European, American or world history, students have undertaken research in the archives and libraries of the India Office, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Public Records Office, the Society of Friends, the British Film Institute, the Institute of Bankers, and the Imperial War Museum, to name only a few.

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.
