This page contains information about cost estimates for the Semester in London program. It is possible that any of these cost estimates could change.
You should also review this helpful guide to calculate the actual difference between your costs at Binghamton and the cost of participating in the Semester in London program.
These direct costs include the expenses for all group trips and theatre visits, but not for food, personal expenses, personal travel, entertainment, and special purchases. Also, the flight cost is an estimate, which may change as airlines respond to rising fuel costs. We estimate that the minimum cost of food and other necessary personal expenses will be nearing $4000.
The amount students should budget for personal expenses and travel is a personal decision and varies significantly from student to student. Discretionary travel on the Continent is expensive and prices in London are high, with many opportunities to spend more than the amount estimated above.
For more detailed cost information, please refer to the detailed cost sheet-- *The 2013 Estimate of Costs Sheets is coming soon*
Financial Aid and Scholarships
Students who receive financial aid have usually found that their aid packages can be adjusted to help meet the increased cost of study abroad. Financial Aid can be used to cover or support all program costs except the airfare. The Binghamton Office of Financial Aid Services can only consider the applications of students matriculated at Binghamton University for degree study. Other SUNY and non-SUNY students should contact the Financial Aid office at the home university for information about eligibility for all aid programs.
There is limited scholarship assistance for students interested in the London Program. Of primary interest is the Benjamin A. Gilman national scholarship. For more information please see our Scholarships web page.
