What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
Program Testimonials
I learned so much about Shakespeare and Tudor-Stuart history. Going into the study abroad, I knew next to nothing about the classes I was taking. Exploring Oxford and going on all the excursions gave me context for what I was learning, and I got to see some really beautiful sights!

I loved getting to compare and contrast a day in England to a day back home. The buildings were beautiful, different cultures were tied in everywhere, and studying the monarch was fascinating. It was such a great way to see England and learn a ton!!

Definitely do this program. It's short and sweet. It's challenging, but worth it. It's structure allows for you to see SO many amazing tourist sights without planning or figuring out transportation. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. This program is worth your money.

What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Program Testimonials
Junemester is the way to go if you want a lot of excursions, classes mostly online in discussion post format, with a majority of the work finished prior to coming to Oxford. It's not as long as the other programs, but long enough to fall in love with the city

How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
Program Testimonials
I was able to go abroad and see a lot of places I would not have been able to go as just a normal tourist (for example, the Brick Lane mosque!). I have decided that in the future I want to live in London for a short period of time to continue exploring. America might be the "melting pot," but I felt like England really had more cultural diversity in foods and places to experience. I tried Indian food and Ethiopian food all in one day!!
