February 03, 2023 Don't Go For The Name Of Oxford
It wasn't worthwhile, the entire experience was miserable. Zhining D - Wellesley College View Entire Review
January 23, 2023 Had A Good Time!
I really enjoyed the opportunity to go out of my comfort zone, the resources that Oxford allows, and the different types of social events offered there vs at my home college. riya B - Wellesley College View Entire Review
June 10, 2022 Wonderful, Wonderful Worcester!

January 11, 2022 Novel Experience, Good In Doses
I learned how to truly student independently (i.e., without office hours, student tutors, tons of unstructured time) and take advantage of an institution's resources. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
December 09, 2021 Crying In Radcam: A Nine Hour Saga
I learned efficient reading/research strategies that helped me produce phenomenal literature within a tight schedule. The brevity of the term tested by entire bodily ability to sustain itself, and that pressure is an old friend, but I learned how to work through my writing bit by bit instead of wholesale. The tutorial system all... A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
June 18, 2021 Excellent Experience In Oxford!
It was totally worthwhile. I learned not only so much about my subject, but also it helped me decide that I wanted to go to graduate school in this field. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
January 30, 2020 Work Hard And Play Hard
I learned how to structure my time so that I can pump out a good-quality essay each week, all the while making sure to attend as many events as possible to absorb the local flavor. I loved the social aspect of the experience-- it is quite easy to make friends once you get yourself out there, and there are so many opportunities t...

Past Review An Intense But Definitely Worthwhile 3 Months
Definitely worthwhile. The 8 week term is very intensive but there is so much to gain from this experience. I became a much better writer and self-learner, which are skills that I could definitely translate to courses at my home institution. I had lots of free time due to the small amount of tutorials I was enrolled in, and I le... A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned about how to think globally and a lot about English university culture. I also learned much more about the nuances in English culture, such as contentious political issues, English perspectives on the world, life and the cost of life in England, etc. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Academically, I gained many skills in research and academic writing. Outside academics, I gained more independence and friendships that would last a lifetime. It was definitely worthwhile. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Computer Science Major At Oxford
I loved Oxford, the city and the school. It's an amazing and unique place and Worcester College is a great place to be a student. You will meet many interesting people, even if they are not British students, and you will have a lot of fun. They're a lot better at having a work-life balance at Oxford than they are at Wellesley an... A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Fun Oxford Time
It was great being able to really be immersed in oxford. The tutorial system was really different, but ended up being very manageable. And I definitely had more fun than I thought I would, and became close with Worcester students. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review The Oxford Experience: Great, With Some Caveats
It was definitely worthwhile. I've made a few friends abroad, had the opportunity to travel to four other countries, and made more Wellesley friendships I intend to continue fostering at my home institution. My experience was too short to be completely immersive—I wish I had the option to extend it for one more term (rather than... A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
January 24, 2023 Oxford Is Quintessential
Worcester College’s Visiting Student program is an amazingly worthwhile experience. My tutors cared about our tutorial together and continually inspired my interest in graduate studies; I loved the individualisation of the tutorial system. I learned a lot about tackling essay topics and reading a lot of texts in a week. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
January 10, 2023 A Memorable & Fun Experience
I learned how to interact with people and really put myself out there to meet new people, so it's definitely worthwhile. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I enjoyed living in a different country and seeing how different it was from what I was used to. It showed me the pros and cons of different government/systems. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
January 08, 2022 Oxford: The Good And The Bad It's All Up To You
I didn't realize that you really have to figure out what you want from your experience and go for it. There really is no guidance when you get there, and you have to navigate on your own. I wish I had stuck to a few things I liked and made the right friends, but I still made some cool memories. I am still unsure if it was worthw... A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
June 25, 2021 Oxford: Amazing From Some, Not For All
I gained independence--I learned I was capable of taking care of myself for long periods of time without my parents (I usually study close to home and shamelessly take advantage of that fact). I got experience meal planning, cooking, shopping, doing my own laundry, and cleaning. I learned a lot of new physics and significantly ... A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I was challenged in the tutorial system and grew academically while also getting to experience everything that makes Oxford such a special place. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Yes. I've become a much more independent learner. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Make The Most Out Of Your Short Term!
I gained exposure to a different academic and social environment, developed a greater interest in my field of study, and left with greater appreciation for my home institution. A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review I Learned Things!
Great American friends in a network across the country, travel experience and memories, a sense of independence and self-sufficiency/self-trust. Megan Ruppel - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Because I've gotten such a strong education at Wellesley, I knew that I wanted my abroad experience to have a solid academic component. Ultimately, the tutorial system wasn't the best for my subject, and I didn't learn as much as I'd hoped, but the rest of the experience more than made up for it. Oxford (the university and town)...

Past Review Pretty Good!
Difference between British and American culture Chloe - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile! I think it's really important to push yourself and try something new while at university. Oxford provides that international experience without having to give anything up on academics. It was also really freeing not being at Wellesley for a semester and just taking in different things and life experiences.... A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review
