He has published extensively on Joyce, Godard and the theory of language. He has just finished directing a research project cataloging films of British Colonies held by the British Film Institute, the Imperial War Museum and British Empire and Commonwealth Museum.

Directors with whom he has worked include Jean-Luc Godard, Terence Davies, Derek Jarman, Isaac Julien and Chris Marker. Contact Dr. Colin MacCabe.

Housing

Part of the experience is to live like a Londoner.  The overwhelming majority of students choose to live in shared apartments – the English call them flats – spread across the city.  You will be one of as many as eight students living in a flat, which includes shared bedrooms and bathrooms, living space, and access to laundry facilities, all in a secure building.  The flats also come with an equipped kitchen; note meals are not included in the program fee.  Apartments are as varied as the city itself; no two flats are alike. 

Regardless of where you live, you can expect a 45- to 60-minute commute to your classes at UCL as well as the CAPA Center.(door-to-door).  We’ve got your commute covered with an unlimited pass for Zones 1 and 2 on the London Underground.

Walk-In Advising Hours: MWF 2-4 PM

Hey there.  I'm Brice and I'm one of the Assistant Directors at Pitt Study Abroad.  I'm a born-and-raised Pittsburgher (and have the accent to prove it).  My own study abroad experience as a Pitt student took me to Granada, Spain.  Between my host family, the food, and all of the embarrassing language mistakes I made, it turned out to be some of the best months of my life. Now, I'm here to help you make your own study abroad experience a reality.  When I'm not in the office, you can usually find me falling out of yoga poses, riding my bike, and ruining all of these physical activities with a plate of pierogi (extra butter and onions, please).  Get in touch with me at bel18@pitt.edu or 412-383-1029.
