Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with IFSA: Oxford - Oxford University
Traveling to another country, living a different daily life, and participating in different activities has deeply shown me a different culture and taught me a lot; especially that it was my first time to travel and live by myself, so that increased the responsibility sense to a very observable high level. - University of Missouri - Kansas City / UMKC View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IFSA: Oxford - Oxford University
How to be more independent! I also had lots of self-reflection time where I could just sit down and think about what I really want to do, what I like and dislike etc. Plus, I made many new friends, and I could also travel around the UK and Europe! It was eye-opening and humbling. - Lafayette College View Entire Review
Absolutely worthwhile. The best year of my life, hands down. I'm applying to go to graduate school there right now because I can't wait to be back - Kenyon College View Entire Review
My tutorials with Dr. Drolet revolutionized my thinking! And I've formed connections that will last for years to come! - Davidson College View Entire Review
Past Review Oxford Rigorous
It's Oxford. yes. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Go All In!
Fantasic education, some really cool opportunities to participate in activities that are very stereotypical of a very famous university, and a better understanding of how the US is viewed in the world. I also traveled a TON over the 6 week break, so that added a whole other dimension to the experience - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile, I gained independence. The tutorial system taught me self motivation. My writing and communication skills improved dramatically. I learned about the English culture and came to love it. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A sense of accountability for my own education- the tutorial system will do that to you. Greater independence generally- being on your own in a foregin country inevitably makes you more adventurous and better equipped to deal with the unexpected. And of course, great memories! The experience was absolutely worthwhile and I wou... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. I learned a great a deal about my field of study. I also learned a great deal about English culture and how they view the world from interacting with the local students. - Austin College View Entire Review
It was wonderful. It made me a better student. I realized how much I love America. I discovered quirky British words, and things they do totally differently. Oxford is basically Hogwarts. I would highly recommend. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review
Oxford is the most magical, stimulating place I have ever been. Personally, intellectually, and socially, I grew a tremendous amount and really became more empowered from the Oxford experience. - Tufts University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about the confidence that comes from independence. It's rather forced upon you living in another country, but you get outside your comfort zone quickly and learn to fend for yourself in ways that I've never had to at home. - Saint Michael's College View Entire Review
Academically - I learned a lot. It was a rigorous program. I made a lot of friends, range of students from undergraduates to PhDs. The city itself is stunningly beautiful. It was an eye-opening experience in general. - Harvey Mudd College View Entire Review
New knowledge and culture, worth! - Iowa State University View Entire Review
SO worthwhile--learned not only about my subjects but about essay writing and giving talks and networking and the interconnectedness of our universe. - Washington & Lee University View Entire Review
Past Review Good Times
Absolutely, had a fantastic time at Oxford. Learned a lot from my tutors. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review It's A Blessing!
I found faith in truth and hope for life. I made many many life-long friends, both British and internationals. And I couldn't ask anything better. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was a fantastic experience academically and socially and for myself as an individual that I would begin again in a heartbeat. - Villanova University View Entire Review
Definitely. Great school, great people, great culture. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Definately! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review
I became a better student. - Vassar College View Entire Review
It was the greatest year of my life, which I know is a cliche, but it's completely true. I made amazing friends, grew tremendously as a student, and it reinforced my desire to continue on my current career path. Oxford will teach you to become a different kind of student, and one that you really can't become at an American uni... - Tufts University View Entire Review
