UK - Semester

  • Spring Semester.
  • Construction Science Students of Texas A&M University.
  • Satisfies the College of Architecture “Semester Away” requirement.


The semester long program, Wingtips, Work boots, & Wigs, is a study abroad and internship experience packaged together in one 19-week program (a semester +). The Wingtips, Work boots, & Wigs program offers students the chance to earn up to 15 credit hours of upper-level credit, focused primarily on legal and risk management issues in construction in the US and abroad. Because of the internship component and UK visa requirements, the program takes place entirely within the UK, and is based in London. However, students will travel as a group to multiple places of note in and around Great Britain, and will also have several opportunities for individual travel throughout Europe.

This program is unique in that it allows students to fulfill both their internship requirement and their semester away requirement while also earning up to 15 credit hours. Many students taking advantage of this program are able to graduate a semester earlier than would otherwise be possible.
