Wroxton College

Leaving the States and my family and friends for 4 months to study abroad felt scary. However, after arriving at Wroxton it was easy to call this place my second home. Not only are the professors incredibly helpful and supportive, the entire staff including the cooks, front desk administrators and cleaning crew felt like family quickly after moving in. I went to Wroxton without knowing anyone else studying aborad and ended up leaving with friends that I continue to travel around the world with.

Pros
  • Easy access to trains/shuttles/airports
  • Staff is incredibly helpeful & Friendly
  • Became a better student/learner
Cons
  • Not getting semester schedule (breaks included) until the first week

Spring Semester Review

My semester at Wroxton College was one that I will not forget. The staff and faculty are such a warm and welcoming crowd. They really do make the Wroxton Abbey feel like a home away from home. They take you on the most amazing day and weekend trips that will create memories for you to last a lifetime. You also end up creating special friendships with the students you are studying with there. The course load is rigorous but there are 4 beautiful library rooms to study in with your peers and the professors have office hours and would love to work with you.

Pros
  • Seeing sites in England
  • Kind and friendly staff, just like family.
Cons
  • Need a car to get to Banbury (nearest town), cannot safely walk there

Amazing and incredibly transformational!

My term abroad (Fall 1997) at Wroxton was amazing and arguably the most transformational semester I had at university, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels - it was such an incredible experience! I found the British tutorial style of teaching to be dramatically different from what I was accustomed to, and a welcomed approach, emphasizing both in-class and real-world learning. What could be better than studying Shakespeare - then going to Stratford-upon-Avon for a play? Or learning about British government and politics, then going to London to sit in on a session in the Houses of Lords and Commons? I cannot fully put into words just how meaningful the time I spent at Wroxton was, along with thanking all of the wonderful people that made the experience as great as it was. When I returned to campus, I could not stop repeating a mantra, to anyone who would listen: if you are considering going to Wroxton, go! If not, starting considering it! I am grateful for everything that Wroxton introduced to me - transformational!

Pros
  • The atmosphere
  • The people
  • The culture
Cons
  • I wish I had spent the whole year there, instead of just one semester!

Wroxton is the BEST

My semester at Wroxton College was my first semester of my senior year at FDU. it was the Fall of 1988 and I was an English Major about to graduate the following semester. I took one of the greatest courses I’ve ever taken in my entire life, which was called the plays the thing it enabled us to go to Stratford upon Avon watch Shakespearean plays each week. It was mesmerizing to not only being able to read and study the place, but then also see it come to life on the stage, I also had the opportunity to learn about British government, and art history of England. I found an English boyfriend there which turned I to a long distance relationship for at least one year. at Wroxton, I went to castles to celebrate and drank Mead. I recently went to a Renaissance Faire in Sarasota, FL which is near where I live now, and it so reminded me of living in England and my wonderful friends and people who worked there. It is a cherished memory and a school that I continue to support both emotionally and financially. ❤️ Thank you and LOVE to Wroxton and all who keep the program going.

Pros
  • wonderful staff and different culture
  • Excellent academics
  • Great atmosphere to learn and grow in
Cons
  • Different currency

Would Go Back in a Heartbeat!

This program was my favorite part of my entire college experience! You can tell the professors and staff genuinely care about the students. The classes are interesting and the workload balanced perfectly with the trips and experiences. I was able to visit places I'd never even dreamed I could. The Abbey was such a beautiful place to stay. Made some lifelong friends here and wish I could go back everyday! Honestly recommend anyone who has the chance to go to take it. Don't miss out on this amazing program.

One of the best experiences of my life to date

500 characters is not enough to accurately portray how superb this program is. The teachers respect you, the education is wonderful, and they provide tons of travel opportunities and activities throughout your time there. You basically live in a castle and chefs cook for you every night. I still get a personal Christmas card every year from them (I went in 2012) which goes to show how much they care. The only problem is that you’ll be chasing the high of this experience for the rest of your life.

Pros
  • Was able to travel to multiple countries
  • Fantastic professors and education
  • Authentic English experience
Cons
  • Going home

An experiential immersion

A great place to be and a fundamental experience to learning about England, it’s educational system, all while being a part of England and it’s culture. From start to finish, Fairleigh Dickinson, and it’s respective travel abroad program, global scholars program, and honors program are all facilitators of helping and supporting students from the day they enroll to return. You won’t miss an opportunity to visit famous landmarks, and you get the true, unmasked experience to see what life abroad is like.

A Lifetime of Memories and Connections

I'm still connected to so many of the people I went to Wroxton with because of its immersive group experiences. I wear my 20 year old sweatshirt with pride and tell my young students about my experiences in hopes they are encouraged to attend. My grants and loans applied making the transition seemless. All you need to consider financially is spending money and airfare.
The academic rigor, opportunities to connect with other visitors, excursions, and wholesome fun make this adventure one you'll never forget.

Pros
  • Excursions
  • Regal Housing
  • All inclusive
