Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The program did an exceptional job acclimating the American students to the British Tutorial System for learning. All of the professors truly wanted to see us succeed, and would always be available to us should we have any questions. This was a academically rigorous semester, but it was very rewarding.

I miss the campus and the faculty every day. There is not a day that goes by where I don’t reminisce with fellow friends who studied abroad at Wroxton.


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

They planned activities and trips for us every weekend, free of charge. We went to Paris and Scotland for four days for each city, and they covered all of the travel and hotel expenses.

* What could be improved?
  • Honestly nothing.
  • Maybe the inter class that everyone has to take, but even that class was fine.
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? That if you are in the honors program at fdu and study abroad here, you have to write two additional papers to cover your honors class for the semester.
