TEACH IN ENGLAND: HARLAXTON COLLEGE 2016-17
Harlaxton College is two things: a self-contained study abroad campus of the University of Evansville and a 100-room Victorian manor in the English Midlands. Approximately 180 undergraduate college students, sophomore through seniors, attend each semester.

Harlaxton College of the University of Evansville is a partner EIU study abroad program. In addition to offering a substantial discount to each EIU student who enrolls in this study abroad program, Harlaxton also reserves space for an EIU faculty member to recruit students for the program and to teach in the program for a semester. The teaching portion includes free room and board in the Harlaxton Manor.

The deadline for AY 16-17 is April 10, 2015. Please note: You and/or your department are responsible for all expenses. It is important that you, your department chair and your college dean understand this before filling out the application form. Anyone interested should contact Kurt Olausen, director of study abroad (krolausen@eiu.edu), for more information and current application forms.
