Program Description:
Harlaxton College

Set within a spectacular Grade 1 listed manor house, Harlaxton College's integrated program of living, learning, and travel leads the US and UK study abroad sectors and sets the standard for immersive experiential education.

Harlaxton College enrolls students with diverse academic, artistic, and personal interests and offers a curriculum that appeals to students from all majors. Coursework covers a range of general education and discipline-specific options, and thus allows students to progress seamlessly toward graduation while also expanding their horizons. Additionally, Harlaxton is notably an excellent destination for Honors students. Under the direction of talented and dedicated faculty, Honors students have the advantage of unique research, travel, and presentation opportunities that harmoniously support and advance the academic trajectories that have been set for them on their home campuses.

All students leave Harlaxton transformed academically and personally. They become more independent and autonomous and better able to understand their place in a diverse world. Harlaxton equips students with the skills and attitudes necessary for global citizenship, and, above all, inspires them to continue their lifelong journeys.

Eligibility

Students must hold a minimum 2.5 GPA to study at Harlaxton College and be in good standing. 
 

Academics

Students take 12-15 credit hours during their time at Harlaxton, including our British Studies course that orients students to the location and culture of their new home abroad. Each week, our students have the opportunity to travel either with college sponsored excursions or independently.

Accommodations

Housing and meals are included in the program fee. Student rooms are located in the manor and the adjacent (one-minute walk) Carriage House. There are three residential floors in the manor and two in the Carriage House, and there are several shared bathroom and shower facilities on each floor. All rooms are furnished with beds, wardrobes, desks, chairs, and a sink. Bed linens and towels for each student are provided as well. Bulletin boards in each room allow students to make the room feel more like home by adding personal touches.
Because the size and shape of each room varies slightly due to the design of the buildings, the number of roommates may vary from one to four students per room. Responses from surveys completed during the application process are used to match roommates, and students find out their rooming assignments upon arrival at the manor.

Amenities in both the manor and Carriage House include laundry facilities, vending, and TV/lounge spaces. The Refectory dining service, health clinic, Bistro pub, and student development office are easily accessible to all residents, with a sports hall building on site, as well as walking trails within the 297 acres of surrounding gardens, parkland, woodland, and farmland.
