The Department of Music offers a foreign study program in London, England, and is operated in partnership with a third-party provider. The program provides an opportunity for students to combine the hands-on study of music with intensive, experiential exposure to musical performance. The program is open to students (both music majors and non majors) who are instrumentalists, vocalists, and composers, as well as to students whose focus is on music history, theory, sonic arts or ethnomusicology.

Courses bring together the many diverse aspects of musical performance through attendance of more than thirty public performances; Students will also participate in weekly individual lessons with UK professionals.

London is the undisputed musical capital of Europe. The opportunity to attend concerts and rehearsals, meet performers and artists, and experience firsthand the vibrant musical traditions of London offers unique learning opportunities outside the classroom.

*Please note this program is limited to 16 students.

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 each program by clicking on the appropriate term. 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.
