A One of a Kind Program

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, American University's Mentorship Program in UK has been cancelled for fall 2020. 

The Mentorship Program UK (MPUK) is a study abroad opportunity offered in the fall semester, exclusively to AU-bound students. MPUK allows you to get a jump start on your international education—letting you experience British culture firsthand while supported by England’s Bath Spa University.

The Benefits of MPUK

  • Nearly 70% of AU students study abroad during their four years. You’ll be first among your graduating class to study abroad, learning under the mentorship of experienced AU and Bath Spa faculty and administrators.
  • You’ll start the semester with a custom trip, allowing you to see the UK’s greatest cities, and enjoy excursions during the semester to see the UK’s top cultural sites.
  • You’ll earn credit toward your AU degree, satisfy AU Core required courses, and explore your field of interest through Bath Spa electives.

Foundation for Your Future

From day one, you will build the foundation for the AU degree program that you will begin in spring semester, because your Mentorship Program UK classes focus on skills that will advance your academics at AU. You will be enrolled in a combination of AU and BSU courses – taking classes as a cohort on BSU’s campus, while living on BSU’s campus and having full access to BSU campus activities and services.

Experiential Learning

Beyond the classroom, an AU professor and advisor will guide your experience - using England as a classroom, with excursions to London and Stonehenge.

Bath is a city of 176,000—of which 20,000 are college students—90 minutes to London by rail. It is world famous for its ancient Roman Baths, Bath Abbey (once home to author Jane Austen) and status as a UNESCO World Heritage City.
