Amazing academic and cultural experience in a bucolic setting. Weekly trips to Stratford. Lots of opportunities to travel and excellent support from staff. Banbury is an idyllic town, not too far from London (and not too close, either). As an English Major, the opportunity to see Shakespearean plays in Stratford gave me an in-depth understanding of his work in an atmosphere most people can only dream of. It’s an experience everyone should be able to take advantage of, and will enrich their lives in many ways.
