Welcome to The Wellcome Trust

As I have mentioned in several of my blogs, we have city excursions and museum visits built into our syllabi that correspond with our class subjects at the Foundation of International Education. In our Nursing Genetics class, we recently visited the Wellcome Trust museum, known as the Wellcome Collection. The Wellcome Trust is a biomedical ...

One Month Later

And just like that, I have been in London for one whole month! Here are four things that I have learned over the past four weeks abroad. Appreciate time. On one hand, I feel as though it was just yesterday that I was sitting at my gate at Newark Airport, anticipating my journey. On the ...

Cats, Dogs, and Coffee- Oh My!

An extremely trendy pastime around here is to sit back and relax in cafes around here. You could find a handful of coffee shops on every couple of blocks. You don’t need to look far for a quick pick-me-up. You may be thinking of a regular coffee shop, but we’re talking about Korea, so what’s ...

Wonders of the World: Stonehenge

There are so many great things to do in London, and the city itself is so large, sometimes I forget there is a surrounding country! There are many historical sites to see in England, so I bought a ticket to visit my first one, Stonehenge. There are many accessible and affordable day trips offered to ...

Visit to Victoria Medical Centre

My favorite part about the classes at FIE London, is that fact that our professors utilize the city of London as a learning tool! We are able to go on field trips that pertain to our class subjects, all while exploring our temporary home. Recently in my Healthcare Policy class, we took a visit to ...

Woah, we’re halfway there

Midterms week is here and while studying has definitely been on my mind, another thing on my mind is how this event has officially marked the halfway mark of the term. I must say though, in no way does that mean I am a pro at navigating through Korea. There are still so many instances ...

Eating Your Way Through London: Camden Market

As I stated in my previous “Eating Your Way Through London” post, London is home to many, many markets. Each with their own character, it is a goal of mine to visit all the markets that I possibly can during my time abroad. With Borough Market already crossed off the list, I decided to visit ...

K-pop Shenanigans: Part 1

If you are a fan of the k-pop music industry, then attending a k-pop event is a must! Even if you are not a die-hard fan for any particular group, I would still suggest trying to get into a show and see how it is all done behind the scenes. You never know! You might ...

Holidays Away From Home

Have you ever spent a holiday away from home or your family? I have before, but it can be difficult, especially if it is your first one. Not everybody can say that they’ve experienced a holiday in another country! I viewed this opportunity to celebrate in a new culture as an exciting challenge. We started ...
