Overall Experience
I grew so much as a writer and thinker and grew more over the course of a single term at Cambridge than I had in 2 full years at my home institution. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to deal with a sex offender abroad. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
While abroad I feel like I really got to know myself (cliche, I am aware), and I think that Cambridge's academic system is so individual that it really required me to leave my comfort zone and really get comfortable with the material and my thoughts on it. Because I joined a sports team, I got to see parts of the country I would... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
August 11, 2018 Semester Abroad
The program was worthwhile. I learned a lot, but I had to do so independently. I am grateful for the experience as the educational system operates differently from Wellesley's. It was an awesome opportunity to also travel through Europe. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about English Renaissance art and about British culture - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Great Experience
I loved my study abroad experience because of the people I was able to meet. Academics were rather rigorous, but I received support from my peers in the exchange program. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learnt so much in the subject and experienced a very different academic system, which encouraged self exploration and provided feedback about your study in depth. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Attending the University of Cambridge as a study abroad student was an extremely fulfilling experience. I was able to take courses that I would not otherwise have been able to at Wellesley College due to the difference in size of both institutions. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile! What I learnt exceeds what can be learnt in the classroom. I learnt so much about English culture and history. I'm sure friendship I made there will be long lasting. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned so much from my classes. I traveled to 5 different countries. I met such an array of people. I truly had the best summer of my life. And I would give anything to do it again. And I am certainly not the only one saying that. - Yale University View Entire Review
Past Review Cambridge
My experience was definitely worthwhile. I found it interesting to see how economics is studied differently at Cambridge than at Wellesley, and I learned a lot. Cambridge is an amazing place. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I became a better student, writer, and reader and learned to live more independently. It was by far one of the most worthwhile experiences of my life. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was most definitely worthwhile. I got to see Cambridge in vivid detail as well as many European towns/cities, which I traveled to on the weekends thanks to a travel stipend from the Thouron Prize I received. - Harvard University View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself socially and academically. I grew so much and 100% believe that it was a worthwhile experience. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
September 17, 2019 Enlightening And Pleasant
Experienced different educational system. Overall pretty chill and had free time to explore the surrounding areas. It was worthwhile - Wellesley College View Entire Review
This program is incredibly rigorous, and as a result I grew as an academic scholar. The supervision system and close one-on-one interactions I experienced with my supervisors strengthened my writing and research skills, which will prove useful for my senior thesis. Although this program does not provide quite as much freedom to ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with University of Cambridge, Pembroke College: Cambridge - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
The biggest thing I learned was how to manage my time. Because assignments are given in supervision and lectures are optional, there is a lot of time on one's hands. So it's really up to the individual to figure out when to do the assigned readings/essays. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I made great friends when I was abroad and learned a lot about living in another country. Being abroad was worthwhile, although I do not think the program was necessarily what made it worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I really enjoyed my time abroad. Cambridge has a 6 week break in the middle of the semester that is a great travel opportunity. The classes also so rigorous that you can't fly out to somewhere during the week for a weekend getaway. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
During my time abroad, I was able to learn a lot about British culture as Cambridge is about as British as it can get! I loved walking through the town of Cambridge-it is quite idyllic. Cambridge also has a very distinctive history and culture that truly adds to the academic experience. Some traditions (such as formal halls) ha... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I would only recommend this program to students who really understand the demands that will be asked of them. My courses were very thought-provoking and enjoyable, but they did consume the majority of my time abroad. Luckily, Cambridge has a very long spring break (4-5 weeks), when I was able to travel and have more of a traditi... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Life Changing!
I gained a new way of looking at familiar academic subjects, a better understanding of my academic abilities, and greater confidence. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Learned independence and how to interact with people of different cultures. One of the most worthwhile experiences I've ever had. - Cornell University View Entire Review
I definitely grew a lot as a student and sharpened my writing, research, and analytical abilities a great deal. I learned more about how I work best and what areas I need to improve, like managing and structuring my own time. I also gained a lot of insight into not just other cultures (and how they organize their societies, huge... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
