My time in Oxford helped me develop intellectually both within my academic work but also in the personal, interpersonal, and religious parts of my life. I absolutely loved the city and everyone I met in it. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Middlebury Schools Abroad: Middlebury – CMRS Oxford Humanities Program
I learned so much about how to conduct research in the humanities at an advanced level. Pushing myself to my academic limit also highlighted learning habits that work well for me, and where I have room for improvement.
