Overall Experience
Due to the lack of information about the program from my home institution, it was not so fun when I realized the gap between where myself was at and the expectation, nor the fact that I could not get enough credit transferred back. I would say that instead of academics, I learned the most about how to effectively communicate to ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I was able to travel a lot, and really explore subjects in depth that academically I had only heard about a little previously. It pushed me to explore on my own and find topics I was curios about - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Past Review Wonderful!
Gained a lot of friends and so many academic and work skills. It was certainly worthwhile - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned my learning capacity, what I love to study and how to study effectively, how to write well, and how to adjust to a place different from your own home. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I truly enjoyed my experience abroad. The tutorials that I had were engaging and thought-provoking. I enjoyed having afternoon teas with friends, going to formal halls, and rowing on the river. I was also blessed with the opportunity to travel all over Europe! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Interesting tutorial system conducive to in-depth individual investigation. Really great traditions to take part in. Lots of available events to learn new things and meet new people (talks, society cocktails, balls, etc) - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Past Review It Was Okay.
I learned how to initiate and keep a conversation going with strangers. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a remarkable amount about myself and what I need or don't want to bother with. I also have a far greater understanding of my academic capabilities and feel as if I could confidently enter a graduate programme now instead of heading back to Wellesley for my senior year. The experience was most certainly worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I think I grew educationally, socially, and culturally. iI was certainly worth while. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Intensive academic training. Cross-cultural perspectives. Interaction with smart and talented peers. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I think it was academically worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
knowing there are so many opportunity out there and so many talented students working hard to reach their goal. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained a lot of useful skills that will be useful when I return to Wellesley. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to put myself out there, how to take more risks, how to truly hold my ground while conversing with people who have written books on what I am studying. I learned that it was perfectly normal to go to black tie events in castles, how to punt, how to perfectly balance 2 essays a week with 5 nights out. I learned that... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Rigorous academic studies with a lot of fun in the city. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Intellectual maturity was the biggest thing I gained from my year abroad. In addition, it has helped me figure my area of interest for grad school. I'd say it was definitely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. Oxford has a very different education system, and while I prefer Wellesley's system, it did open my eyes to how students in the UK learn. It is also refreshing to meet professors with a very different set of expectations from what you're used to, and that pushes you to think outside the box. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned about British culture, efficient essay-writing, and the nature of education outside of Wellesley. It was worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
