Skidmore's First-Year Experience in London
Academic Program

Students participating in the First-Year Experience in London take a total of four, four-credit courses at the IES London Center. Skidmore’s two faculty directors teach one Scribner Seminar each. Students are required to take one of the Scribner Seminars. IES provides six additional topics courses. Students choose three other courses from those topics courses. All courses provide for cultural activities in London that complement students’ formal classroom study. The course instructor accompanies students on all activities. All courses are taught in the IES London facilities. IES has identified one senior faculty member as a primary contact and advisor for the program. This person serves as a liaison between the faculty directors and the IES London staff and faculty.

Credits and grades from the First-Year Experience in London work as they do for other Skidmore programs: students receive Skidmore credits and grades received count toward their Skidmore GPA.
