Overall Experience
I experienced another culture in way which I have never experienced it before. Travelling and living in another country has really developed me as a person and I feel more mature as a result. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

A better college experience - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My primary reason for choosing the Oxford Study Abroad Programme was my intention to eventually study philosophy at the graduate level. I can safely say that I learned more philosophy in eight weeks at Oxford than I had learned in a year and a half at Pacific. I was surrounded by extremely motivated and intelligent students, whi... - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Learned how to write quickly, study well and just get around better as an individual, extremely worthwhile. - St. Mary's College of Maryland View Entire Review
Absolutely, It was worth while! Before going abroad I feel like I was sheltered and this was a way for me to step outside of my comfort zone and grow as a person. - Marymount University View Entire Review
Yes, definitely worthwhile - learned how to travel efficiently and balance this with school - Wellesley College View Entire Review
The tutorial system on its own is very different from the class system in the US. Under the system, I learned to be an independent learner and improved my communication skills. This experience abroad was definitely worthwhile, wish it were longer. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned that it is indeed possible to write and read for two essays in the span of a week or less. In particular for the political science program, I very much appreciate the comparative and institutional approach to many of the topics within comparative politics. My knowledge concerning topics ranging from civil war to legisl... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Oxford Study Abroad Programme (OSAP): Oxford - Multiple Universitites
Academically, the tutorial system was challenging yet in every way rigorous and enriching, given that I devoted quite a large percentage of my time during school terms. Since Oxford cultivates a relatively more close-knit environment, both socially and spatially, I was able to branch out and meet people in the university coming ... - Barnard College View Entire Review
I have no reservations about recommending the Oxford program. The tutorial system is unique to Oxford and Cambridge. It's one-on-one with an expert in your field, and completely tailored to your interests. I'm an undergraduate economics student who is interested in law school, so I met with a law fellow who introduced me to E... - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
It was more than worthwhile, it is one of the best things I have ever done! It was humbling to study with such a brilliant Oxford don, and I learned that although I will most likely never be a Rhodes scholar, if I work very hard with my studies, it will be rewarded! I also learned a great deal about being independent: shoppin... - Marymount University View Entire Review
