Overall Experience
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 that I am a much more capable student than I have previously given myself credit for. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained an appreciation of Shakespeare, the British people and culture, the Pakistani diaspora there. I made some excellent American friends, and it was absolutely worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned the most when I was traveling, but not all students will have the privilege to do this, so for the general middle or lower class student population, I do not think that this program in particular is worthwhile. There was also hardly any support system for students of low income status. Everyone seemed to just assume th... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I made a good friend in addition to some useful connections. - University of San Francisco View Entire Review

Definitely worthwhile. I learned more about how to live and function in a different country, a long ways from home. I also improved academically, too, especially my writing. - St. Olaf College View Entire Review

This was entirely worthwhile. My writing and reading comprehension skills improved immeasurably. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Time management is important and you should plan out / set goals for what you hope to accomplish from the beginning. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
November 28, 2017 Worth It.
It helped me grow as a person. It was the first time I ever cooked for myself. And even though I have lived away from home for 5 years at that point, I felt a whole lot more independent. I learnt that libraries are hidden jewel mines waiting to be discovered. It was worth it for sure. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the British educational system. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I really learned how to care about my work because it was personally interesting to me, not because it was assigned. Super worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Yes, due to the academics and the community that the program inspires. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
This was definitely worthwhile. I pushed myself to my academic limits while adapting to a new country and having a good time. It was thrilling. - Amherst College View Entire Review
I made a lot of American friends from other colleges that I still hang out with. I also learned how to write an 8 page essay in 3 hours which I think will help me going into senior year. I learned to work and study material at a new level and became a much stronger writer. I also had the opportunity to travel around other countr... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Middlebury Schools Abroad: Middlebury – CMRS Oxford Humanities Program
Since I spent every week writing two essays and worked on a giant research paper for the last three weeks of the program, I really improved my essay writing and analytic skills and learned many tips. I became close with a lot of the students in the program, and established great connections with the students and staff. This was ... - George Washington University View Entire Review
June 22, 2018 Fantastic
I gained a different learning module and a different thinking process - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile, but it was not oriented toward my main academic studies - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I made invaluable connections in my field, studying in Oxford was an absolute dream come true - Shimer College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about my study habits, and my abilities to learn independently, which I would not have learned at Middlebury. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained an much more worldly mindset and perspective. I know can imagine myself living in Europe more long term in the future. It was very worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Definitely learned to be more independent. I learned a lot academically, so that's good because I still have another year of school. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I really improved as a student, especially in my independent abilities. I also have seen a noticeable difference in my academic confidence, especially in discussion. I made amazing friends who I still keep in touch with. Oxford is just also a magical and beautiful place. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
CMRS was pretty intense but I learned how to engage more deeply with texts and write better essays. I made a lot of new friends and came back a far better student. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
