ASE offers full-year, semester and summer school study programmes for students from American universities and colleges.
Students live and study in the world heritage city of Bath, England.
Established in 1987, ASE is proud of its reputation for academic excellence. Teaching takes place in small seminar groups (maximum 13 students) and tutorial-style classes. Courses are taught by highly-qualified British faculty, many from Oxford University, and the Programme enjoys ongoing academic ties with University College, Oxford.
Our study centre is situated at the heart of the beautiful, eighteenth-century city of Bath, 90 minutes west of London. Each semester includes a week-long residential at University College, Oxford, three days in Stratford-upon-Avon, and organized day trips to some of the hidden rural treasures of England and Wales. Many of our seminars also include study trips to course-connected locations and events.
An exciting and carefully structured social and cultural programme encourages students to learn about, and immerse themselves more fully in the life of the city. A team of Bath-based student helpers organizes weekly events and helps facilitate links with local volunteering agencies, clubs, sports teams and societies.
