As one of TLU’s signature study abroad programs, the Harlaxton College experience, through the University of Evansville in Indiana and their British campus, hosts students from various parts of the U.S. to study in a lovely 19th century manor house on 117 acres of gardens, parks and woodlands. The campus is near Grantham, England and just two hours from London by train. Local and visiting professors teach a variety of courses, including group excursions and independent travel.
Many TLU faculty and staff have experience Harlaxton College firsthand, including TLU President Dr. Stuart Dorsey, International Education Director Charla Bailey and Biology Professor Dr. Robert Jonas, who spent a semester there as a visiting professor. While students are immersed in British culture, they are still challenged academically. Harlaxton College is a perfect location for TLU students who are interested in studying outside of the U.S. and may not be comfortable with the language barrier of other programs or less experienced travelers.
In addition to rigorous academics, Harlaxton College allows students to travel to nearby historic sites that make British (and American) history come alive. This popular study abroad program has been described as one of the most impactful in the lives of those who have experienced it.
