J-Term Diaries: England
Britain in the International Economy
Most of the European Union has completed economic and monetary union, with the United Kingdom, Sweden and Denmark the lone holdouts from the EURO, the common currency area. In addition, 10 new nations joined the EU in mid-2004 and others are waiting for their opportunity to enter. This course comes at an opportune time for students to see the exciting economic and business changes that are taking place throughout Europe. Students will stay in the Abbey at Wroxton College, although a number of trips away from Wroxton are planned. Students will visit the town of Oxford and Oxford University, as well as Parliament, a stop that includes a tour, speakers and visits to the galleries of the Houses of Lords and Commons. Students also will see a play at the Royal Shakespeare Theater in nearby Stratford-upon-Avon and spend the day in Stratford, the home of William Shakespeare. Additionally, there will be trips to Stonehenge, Bath and Warwick Castle, several industry tours, and a weekend in London.
