Overall Experience
I am a better student and person for having gone to Oxford. I plan to go back for graduate school. It solidified my love for academia and broadened my cultural horizons. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
yes. - Barnard College View Entire Review
YES. This was an absolutely amazing experience from the friends I made, the professors/tutors I learned from, and the places I saw. One of the best experiences of my life, and I sincerely hope to return to the UK sometime soon in the future. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I really learned how to be a self-motivated, independent learner and my time management skills got a lot better. I think this will really help me in my future studies. I loved the city of Oxford, which is beautiful, and the libraries, which are incredible resources that you won't find anywhere else, and the tutorial system. I... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It may sound cliched, but I know I've grown so much as a student and person from my study abroad experience. I now know I have the self-discipline, independence, and open mind that are necessary for new academic and personal experiences. I also met so many incredible people who are not only intelligent, but also friendly and fun... - Barnard College View Entire Review
I loved the experience. It was extremely fulfilling. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Yes it was definitely worthwhile. I've made some friends I know I will keep in touch with for life and I definitely believe it has changed the direction of my career choices. It has helped me narrow down my field of interest and made me even more determined to succeed in that field. Seeing the passion of the faculty and students... View Entire Review
I absolutely loved my year at Oxford. I really hope I am able to spend some more time there at some point in my life. The intensely academic lifestyle, however, has taught me that a life of academia is not for me. As such, it has really helped me define my future career and academic plans. I wholeheartedly recommend Oxford. ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Absolutely! Everything, every study, and discipline overlaps and builds upon the successes or failures of the other. - Shenandoah University View Entire Review
Past Review
Oxford provided the BEST experience of my academic and social life. My tutorials were challenging, but yet I was still able to find a balance between work and play. I also got to explore ten countries across the European continent, which I otherwise would have found quite costly to do. I made some truly meaningful friendships wi... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Past Review Uk Study Abroad
I learned a lot academically, but socially and culturally did not find it to be very fulfilling. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I had an amazing time at Oxford. I have never been so happy academically, intellectually, or socially. It was one of the best experiences of my life. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Absolutely. It sounds sentimental, but this was, without doubt, the best year of my life. I hope to live in the United Kingdom (and/or Ireland) again at some point in the future, either for work or for grad school. I feel that I have a good understanding of the United Kingdom, England in particular, and a much greater understand... - Barnard College View Entire Review
Yes, it was. - DePauw University View Entire Review
I had a great time. I had spent time in the city of Oxford before, so the culture was not new. It was a great experience to spend such a prolonged time in a different country, though. - Tulane University View Entire Review
Oxford is the best academic experience I have ever had. It provided me with a much broader and, at the same time, deeper understanding of my subject, challenging me to exceed my limits every step of the way. It revived my interest in chemistry and consolidated my conviction that graduate school is the natural next step for me. ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Oxford
I am now a certified Anglophile and will definitely be returning to Oxford - whether for my Master's or otherwise. - Barnard College View Entire Review
Past Review
I'd say so - it gave me a great deal of insight into the field I'm looking to enter. - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
I can't even explain how wonderful this was. Really, if you have any interest at all, and you're a good student, go for it. It's challenging, but amazing. And do two terms, if you can; just one doesn't feel like enough. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
Past Review
I loved this program. My writing improved considerably, I learned new ways to read that changed the way I look at literature, and I had an amazing time discussing incredibly nerdy things with professors who have been there and still have an insatiable thirst for learning. - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review

About

If you are a student from overseas (in most cases countries outside the EU) and wish to spend up to one year in Oxford on a course related to a degree in your own country, you can apply to a college for a place as a Visiting Student. As a Visiting Student you become a member of an Oxford college, and it is the college that will arrange for your tuition. Oxford does not award a degree or any other qualification for one year of study as a Visiting Student, but colleges are willing to provide a record of achievement, for example for credit purposes.
