A less central London option; easier admission; campus setting in culturally-diverse area of East London (close to site of 2012 Olympics). IFSA program costs $8,000+ extra (not addressed by Bates financial aid). Many students have positive evaluations of IFSA services: pre-departure info; on-site orientation; day and weekend excursions; on-site support staff. IFSA's Community and Culture program encourages engagement while abroad and reflection upon the abroad experience.
