Airfare to London:
Airfare from the United States to London can range between $300 and $700 depending on the season, starting point, and how far in advance the ticket was purchased. London is a very well-served destination in terms of airline flights from the United States and students who book their ticket early should be able to find a relatively large set of options. 
We designate a group arrival time and day for admitted students a few months before the program start date and recommend that students arrive within a several hour period. Students who arrive on the designated day will be met at Heathrow airport by one of our representatives and will have complimentary transfer from the airport to central London. 
Students can make travel arrangements to arrive on alternate dates or flights. Students who arrive on an alternate date will have to take a taxi to the student housing.
