Wroxton not only focuses on education, but plans many trips throughout the week to allow students to explore 'tourist' attractions!

Not including program expenses, about how much money did you spend on food and other expenses each week? $250
Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Wroxton College provides a lot to students included in their normal 'tuition and board' price. If you want to take this experience to the next level by going out to other countries and excursions, it can get expensive.

The Avid Adventurer
The wardrobe you packed was better suited for a semester of camping than club hopping. Outdoorsy, you might forgo a crazy night out for an early all-day adventure. You'd rather take in the rich culture of an old town than the metropolis of a modern city, but for you getting off the grid is ideal.
