Pay Application Fee here (must be paid before application will be processed)
Any full-time or part-time student is eligible to participate in the program. Students from institutions that are not part of the University System of Georgia are admitted on a space-available basis and must enroll as transient students at a participating institution.
An application form is available on the European Council Website; copies of the form are also available from campus representatives listed on this site. Completed applications should be submitted to the campus representatives, along with a required application fee of $200 (to be paid online). Campus representatives forward completed applications to the program office at Valdosta State University. Applications will not be processed by the EC office until both the application form (approved by the campus representative) and the $200 application fee are received.
Because of space limitations, acceptance is on a first come, first served basis, according to the date of receipt of the application and application fee at the program office. Students are encouraged to apply well in advance of the application deadline to assure them of a place in the program. The application deadline for 2013 programs is March 1, 2013.
Students must be in good standing in order to be admitted to the program. Completion of an application form does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Note also that individual campuses may require letters of reference or other information beyond that required by the European Council.

Advice from Previous London Students
Be open to everything! Have ideas in your head of what you want to do but don’t plan out every single day. You’ll make friends so make sure you do things as a group.
Work first, play later.
Save up your money.
Bring a good pair of shoes, and clothes that can be worn many ways.
Have fun! Do your homework, go to class, and enjoy your time in London! Don’t be a hermit and sit in your room. Make friends and explore!
Take the walking tours & to try and go on the planned weekend trips.
You can truly wear whatever in London, just dress warmer.
Be smart with money.
Try to book trips in advance with people to save money and definitely get the Britrail; it saves me lots of money and also don’t over pack because you will buy a lot of souvenirs here.Just go.
