A student studying abroad with Middlebury Schools Abroad: Middlebury – CMRS Oxford Humanities Program
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
A student studying abroad with Middlebury Schools Abroad: Middlebury – CMRS Oxford Humanities Program
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
A student studying abroad with Middlebury Schools Abroad: Middlebury – CMRS Oxford Humanities Program
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
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
So and so. It was a different experience than studying at my home institution, very challenging and I guess I feel good about myself, knowing that I managed to complete the work I was assigned every week. The tutorials of the program were very interesting: one-to-one with an Oxford professor and weekly discussions on the assigne... - Middlebury College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Middlebury Schools Abroad: Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CMRS): Oxford - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
My confidence in my writing and my writing and researching skills improved vastly. I also learnt how to accommodate living in a space with a few dozen other students and gained confidence in putting myself outside my comfort zone to really enjoy my time abroad - Wellesley 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
Past Review 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

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
I learned how to rely on myself. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was not a cultural enlightening experience, but the academics made it all worth it! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned better study habits, how to approach intense academic writing, time management, adaptability, open-mindedness, and cultural awareness amongst others. I did find the overall experience worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
The program at M-CMRS is well organized to help students adapt and thrive in a new environment. During my semester at CMRS I found the challenge of the tutorial system to be fulfilling and exciting as I learned new skills in research methods, literary analysis, and in-depth note taking. The fast-paced format of the classes pushe... - Walla Walla University View Entire Review
I learned to be more confident and self-sufficient. I also really discovered my passion for medieval English history. It was definitely worthwhile, and I regret not going an extra semester. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
