Wroxton College Spring 2023

While I was researching colleges back in high school, I knew I wanted to attend a university that was passionate about global learning. When I found FDU and learned about their campus in England, I couldn't not apply. Spending this past semester there, I can definitely say that it has exceeded my expectations and more. It challenged me both academically and socially and has been nothing short of an experience of a lifetime. It has opened my eyes and mind to new diverse way of learning and gave me relationships which I will cherish forever. Thank you Wroxton!

Pros
  • New learning experience
  • Get to see so many different parts of England
  • Build amazing relationships

Wroxton College End of Semester Review

As a freshman I wasn’t expecting to have any opportunity to study abroad so early but I highly recommend it! Wroxton is such a unique program where you learn but get to explore England as well as other parts of Europe! This program gives you so many opportunities to explore and allows you to fully experience a new place. The courses here are very informative and the small class sizes allow you to really get to know your professors and classmates. The actual environment is very engaging and it is something I would highly recommend to other students thinking of studying abroad.

Wroxton College End of Semester Review

Doing a semester abroad at Wroxton has been a wonderful opportunity that I am so grateful for. Initially, the big excitement around coming here is being able to travel every weekend. The school is incredibly organized and prepares transportation for every weekend trip available, and they truly take students’ desires into account. We get an incredible amount of freedom to explore on the weekend trips and it really allows you to see the world through a new lens. You can choose to sign up for certain trips or not, but there are so many trips every weekend all across the UK that absolutely every individual will find something they enjoy. Aside from the weekend trips, the time spent in the Abbey is equally as surreal. The Abbey itself is basically Hogwarts, and we are actually sorted into different teams and all compete for the “Wroxton Cup” throughout the semester (my team won, of course). The staff in and of themselves are remarkably kind and their doors are always open to help the students. They frequently send out surveys asking students to what they would like to see on the menu, how the cleaning staff are doing, etc. And then actual change occurs based on our answers. The academic community here is so incredibly supportive as well. Every single teacher I had I felt exceedingly comfortable coming to with questions or problems or assistance when I made a mistake. The teachers are so kind and really do care about each of the students. Even the dean of the college himself leaves his door open for students to come ask questions. All in all, I genuinely recommend this experience to anyone. And don’t forget to pet Pip, the cat that wanders around the grounds :)

Pros
  • Welcoming
  • Adventurous
  • Organized
Cons
  • Timely

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.
