It was definitely worthwile, Oxford by itself is enough of a reason to study abroad there. Amazing experience, I would definitely go back again! - Middlebury College View Entire Review

Academically speaking, this was an incredibly rigorous experience that will prepare me for future challenges. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My writing, editing, and research skills improved immensely. I can now skim through several books, identify important arguments and thoughts, and compose a 7-8 page paper in one week. I made new friends, played frisbee, talked to people with different views than my own, and made connections for life. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I definitively improved as a writer, and gained confidence in writing more professionally. It was also fascinating working under the Oxford system. I definitely found it a worthwhile experience... I just wish my Independent Research Professor had been more professional. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I learned how to survive a lonely, difficult but rewarding period. Looking back, I got a great deal from the level of hard work I put in, but for my mental state it was not worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Middlebury Schools Abroad: Middlebury – CMRS Oxford Humanities Program
I learned how to be a better writer, which is a very useful skill. I think being able to improve in that area was worth it. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
How to conduct good research and write longer papers. How to be a more effective researcher and to more efficiently use resources. How to live in a city as a opposed to a rural campus. It was definitely worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
