Overall Experience
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

Absolutely! - Harvard University View Entire Review
My Supervison with Robin Kirkpatrick made me a Dante man -- important for my medieval academic interests. I am also more serious about going to grad school in the UK. - Harvard University View Entire Review
Yes. - Harvard University View Entire Review
Yes, it was a different academic environment with different teaching styles and different students. It was also a lot of fun. - Harvard University View Entire Review
My study abroad certainly benefitted me from an academic standpoint, in terms of my satisfaction with the coursework I enrolled in. The program was not as immersed in the British culture, which was somewhat upsetting given my intentions for studying abroad. - Harvard University View Entire Review
Absolutely. Definitely want to apply to grad school at Cambridge. - Harvard University 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 had a relaxing but intellectually stimulating summer--what I was looking for. I also got to travel in Europe a bit. - Harvard University View Entire Review
Yes, I learned how to motivate myself academically. I learned a lot about Britain and also about the world from a British perspective. I feel that I am much more receptive to different opinions and appreciate them more. - Harvard University View Entire Review
It was great but so were my other alternatives - Harvard University View Entire Review
Definitely, but I think it was more worthwhile on a personal rather than intellectual or academic level. - Harvard University View Entire Review
I got to learn quite a bit about different cultural experiences within the UK. It was really fun. - Harvard University View Entire Review
Yes it was worthwhile! In some way, I feel like before the trip I was missing something about the world, and now I have a better handle on it. I truly am a changed person, and will draw from my experiences, friends, and classroom work from Cambridge for the rest of my life. - Harvard University View Entire Review
Absolutely! Socially and academically, this was the single most empowering experience of my life. - Harvard University View Entire Review
