Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity

Leadership London

Leadership London

Interested in studying abroad but worried about missing out on a semester with your brothers? Pi Kappa Phi is pleased to provide our members the opportunity to study, intern, and explore the United Kingdom with other brothers through our Leadership London program.

Leadership London is a partnership between Pi Kappa Phi and the Foundation for International Education (FIE) — an accredited study abroad provider — that integrates classroom learning, internship experiences, and leadership development opportunities in order to prepare our students for leadership in a global world.

STUDY 

Since 1998, the Foundation for International Education has set a high standard for delivering academic programs abroad. The FIE Study & Internship Program is a customized program that includes course work, as well as a guaranteed internship with a small to mid-sized company in London.

Courses take place at Foundation House, a study center located in beautiful, historic Kensington. Our students will be able to take advantage of a professional team of educators, administrators, and staff, as well as all of the extra-curricular activities available during their term abroad. Click here for additional information regarding the academic course information. 

Students matriculating from institutions that also partner with FIE can receive course credit directly from their college or university. All other Pi Kappa Phi members will receive a transcript from Drexel University, FIE’s U.S. school of record.

INTERN 

An international internship through FIE is a pre-professional, field-based experience coupled with academic analysis and reflection that helps students develop professional and cultural skills while providing personal and career awareness.

With an FIE internship, Pi Kappa Phi members will have the opportunity to apply classroom theory to practice and to challenge pre-conceived notions of cultures and professional world. This experience strengthens students’ marketable skills to future employers who now want people with international experience to help grow their company.  Click here for additional information about the internship opportunities available.

EXPLORE 

In addition to academic and experiential education, members of Pi Kappa Phi will also participate in the GreekConnect program, which includes facilitated discussions on the Greek foundations of fraternities and sororities, exploration of the Masonic traditions that influenced fraternity and sorority rituals, and “reverse culture shock” training on how best to re-assimilate into the chapter after a semester abroad.

Additionally, members will also have the opportunity to connect with, network, and explore Europe with other Pi Kappa Phi brothers and alumni while becoming engulfed in the culture of London for a semester.
