September 30, 2019 Challenging Yet Rewarding.
I've become a better writer! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained an understanding of the differences in British and American universities, got a taste for British culture, really developed my research, writing, and discussion skills, and had a lot of fun. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Studying highly intellectual topics on my own, writing and reading regularly, managing my own time and expectations maturely. Totally worthwhile - although the values may only be revealed after some failures and frustrations. - University of Oxford View Entire Review
It was an excellent educational experience, both in a traditional academic sense as well as with cultural understanding. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

Part of my more holistic experience was experiencing the UK and getting a sense of what a country that was a former colonizer, which still keeps somewhat peaceful ties with its colonies, has grown from those times to now. As well as getting to explore avenues of education I might want to venture in within the country. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Very good tutorials -- I'm a Medieval and Renaissance studies major so course options were very specialized - Wellesley 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
The culture, and it was worth it - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned that I can work incredibly hard, and polo is the best sport ever. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

September 29, 2019 The Best Year Of My Life.
I learned a lot about being independent and managing my own schedule whilst being worthwhile. I also learned that I love the UK because of my experience. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
September 09, 2019 An Incredible Opportunity
Improved ability to sustain lots of unstructured work - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a ton about time management and being able to digest a large volume of material in a short time span. This was very worthwhile as it is an important skill for life beyond Oxford. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I think on top of the rigorous academics, this program was good for learning how to live on your own. Also the kids in the program (while isolated from the locals) were very nice. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

Totally worthwhile. Oxford showed me what I want to do with my life. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
