Overall Experience
Oxford completely transformed my outlook on life. The academics at Oxford are great, but it's the people and the culture that is irreplaceable. I have never clicked with my home institution and its student body. The friend group I developed at Oxford was the first one that I felt I truly belonged in. I feel that my Oxford friend... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned some Chemistry topics to a depth I would not learn in normal undergraduate courses in the United States. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was the most worthwhile experience I have every undertaken, and I recommend everyone to take the leap to experience their own year of immense friendship, academic depth and effort, and global adventure. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Academics and college life were great but I had to force my way into college community--OSAP doesn't help. My semester had a lot of loner American students that hung out only with themselves. - University of California - San Diego / UCSD View Entire Review

I gained exposure to a completely different learning and teaching style. I also enjoyed my time there by traveling to other places. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I loved Oxford Uni and the faculty there. The city and university staff did their job, but the private organization OSAP failed on numerous obligations. - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review
Past Review A Lot Of Fun!!
i learnt work life balance that does not exist at wellesley - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Experiencing a different academic system (the tutorial system) was worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Learned how we are taught to think so differently in different countries. Found my passion for philosophy. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
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
Past Review Unforgettable.
I learned independent study. Yes. - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater 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
Definitely. I lived on my own, in a different country from my family, and had to figure things out. I was able to understand who I was better by being placed in an unfamiliar environment. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained a lot of vital educational knowledge that I will definitely carry into my last year of undergrad and beyond. I also got to have a social experience that my home institution had yet to afford me (due to school environment and the pandemic). - Wellesley College View Entire Review
August 26, 2021 The Oxford Experience
It was extremely worthwhile! It was a challenge to study abroad during COVID however, the one-on-one tutorial system was very nice to have because it was easy to replicate on zoom. I missed plenty of other things like formals and clubs but the education remained up to par. In all, I was able to meet many people in the program an... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile because I was active in thinking, learning, questions, problem solving, and socializing. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Oxford learning is great, but only when it comes from Oxford professors - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review
Responsibility and flexibility - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I broadened my horizon and experienced a very different kind of university culture, it was very worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned that Oxford is an atypical study abroad experience. If you want to travel to 10 different countries during the semester, then this probably isn't the place to be. However, if you want to integrate into a new community and embrace all of the resources available to you, then Oxford is the perfect university to attend. Ma... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I broadened my horizons and learned how to live as a stranger in a strange land. It was indeed worthwhile. - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review
Yes, definitely worthwhile - learned how to travel efficiently and balance this with school - Wellesley College View Entire Review
