Overall Experience
An intensified focus on learning and balance in all aspects of my life - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I had never spent a significant amount of time abroad, so on top of the academic learning, I was able to get to know a part of the world I had never been exposed to before. I left feeling like I truly knew Oxford. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from the tutorials I took, great choral music experience, and an appreciation of necking pints at the pub. So yeah, worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained the knowledge from the professors and tutors, the experience of living abroad for several months, and the feeling of a writing intensive course load. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Studying at CMRS was the most challenging academic experience I've experienced, but the MOST rewarding thing I've ever done as well. Every ounce of effort you put in, you get back and your eyes are opened to the greatest institution in the world and you leave feeling as if you've learned more in one semester than you've learned ... - Middlebury College View Entire Review

The independence made me take responsibility for every aspect of my daily life and work, which helped me understand what I really find important. It was worthwhile, not only because I felt like I got a taste of grad school, but because I met people who were willing to dive into conversations about the nature of life, art, and pu... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I have a lot of international experience, so for me it was more about the academics and the friends I made. - Elmhurst College View Entire Review

You know those things you do in life when you first start out and it seems like it'll just be this fun new thing you'll try, you'll have the experience, and it'll be great and then it'll be over; but actually it turns out to be this incredibly valuable time of life, and a pretty transformative experience on a personal level, whe... - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I studied, in great detail, numerous topics in my field and learned about the British tutorial system. I learned the feel of life in Britain and made important connections with scholars there. I'm now pursuing a PhD and am confident that I wouldn't be where I am without MCMRS. - University of South Carolina - Columbia View Entire Review
Improved my academic skills quite a bit. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
March 07, 2017 Beautiful
My writing skills have improved as well as my ability to explain my work. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned that I am capable of living on my own. I also learned many academic skills, especially in terms of research, which was definitely worthwhile. - Elmhurst College View Entire Review
I now know that I want to live abroad some day. I fell in love with the culture and the way of life that I adopted while I was away. And I met some British students which was really cool. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
September 25, 2017 Challenging And Rewarding
I learned how to read and write papers fasters. The experience was worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Academic and personal independence. So worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Yes, I've learned a lot about my own process but also got a glimpse at what being an academic would look like. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

August 15, 2017 *Study* Abroad
I learned more than I have at Middlebury. The tutorial system is something to experience. It's far better than lectures or seminars and even though I entails long hours in the library. The location is top notch. Oxford is an iconic place with a surprising amount of geographic variety and is a short train ride into central London... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
August 09, 2017 Loved It
A lot. Yes. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I fostered a new kind of focus and newfound in-depth academic exploration/excitement - University of San Francisco View Entire Review
June 21, 2017 Overload Of Work
I did learn plenty of research skills and how to use a library to my best advantage. I think Oxford is more worth while though if you do two terms with an individual college rather than a proxy program. I would recommend this program if you care little about travelling and want to delve yourself into Medieval or Renaissance stud... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
May 31, 2017 Great
yes - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Everything. Yes worth the money - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot from my courses. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a great deal about Politics. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
The Oxford tutorial system treats students like adults. At first it can be challenging to acclimate to the independence and self-discipline of managing your time, and meeting the demanding tutorial system. However, this program and the highly qualified tutors leave you with stronger researching, arguing, and writing skills that ... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
