Things to do

Seattle (or the "Emerald City" as it's often referred to) offers students a vast range of things to do and see. Well-known for its fresh produce at the Pike Place market and home to the original Starbucks, there is plenty to tantalise your taste buds as well as a wide range of culture, sport and infamous architecture such as the Space Needle.

Travel opportunities

As Seattle is so close to the border, students can easily go and visit Canada. Vancouver is only 2 and a half hours away.

Staying within the US, students can visit Portland Oregon in less than 3 hours. Large volumes of internal flights are available for students looking to travel slightly further afield.


Seattle's climate is usually described as oceanic or temperate marine, with mild, wet winters and warm, dry summers. It falls within a cool/mild wet winter, and dry-summer subtropical zone, with "cool" summer Mediterranean characteristics.

Academic Schools

Students studying in the School of History, Archaeology and Religion are eligible to apply.
