API Excursions

Leeds is the geographical center of the UK which makes it ideal for traveling around Britain! When you study abroad with API, our Resident Director takes you to beautiful places like Harlaxton Manor and York. Our spring semester students also get to visit Edinburgh, Scotland! Tour a “plague village” called Eyam and learn what happened there in 1665. Stop in Bakewell to try the world famous Bakewell tart. Spring semester students spend a day at Chatsworth House (you may recognize it from the movie “Pride and Prejudice” or the Netflix series “The Crown”) as well. Some of our Leeds alumni have said these excursions are the BEST part of the whole semester.
