This is a DEMO of what you could achieve with your listing.
Oxford is famous all over the world for being the home of one of the oldest and most respected universities in the world.
 
The city is situated at the joining of two rivers: the Cherwell and the Thames. As such, the city offers lots of opportunities for boating, punting, and pleasant riverside walks.
 
Oxford is a compact city, with most of the colleges and university buildings within easy walking distance of each other.
 
The amazing architecture of the 40+ colleges makes Oxford a beautiful place to explore, and there is also a vibrant culture apart from the university.
 
There are plenty of museums, cinemas, theatres and shops.
However, should you want more, London is a short train or coach ride away.

Our Reviews

Below are some reviews we have recieved.

HOUSING    
by Sarah, Pennsylvania State University, State College, United States
History, Independent
Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I am lucky enough to have met wonderful people through living in a college-owned house. At Oxford the college is the centre of social life for most students and those living out are not as likely to be easily involved.
Personal comments:
St. Hugh's College houses graduate students in old Victorian homes around the perimeter of the college grounds. They are large, but many are in great need of significant renovations and repairs. The roommates have not been adjusted in a few years, so people with large rooms are often paying less than people with very small rooms

 

STUDENT LIFE    
by necan, Stanford University, Stanford, United States
Political Science, University Agreement
Personal social experience
Activities
KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Student life dominates the city
Nightlife: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Activities, Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
We went to a pub called 'Thirst' a lot. (Well, when we had time in between our studies, which were very rigorous!) Also a club right across the way. The name, I forget. My apartment was right on High Street. There are lots of great shops along the way, if you're into that. Eat a cookie at 'Ben's Cookies' in the Covered Market -- they are ridiculously good. Go inside Christ Church if you can (it's closed to outside visitors). It's where 'Harry Potter' was filmed. Go to the college bops. I found the name funny at first, but I had a great time each time I went. Oxford is beautiful, but make sure you travel as much as you can. Scotland and Ireland are gorgeous.

 

ACADEMIC    
by Diane, Buffalo State College, Buffalo, United States
Public Relations/Publicity/Advertising, University Agreement
My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
We were on a self-contained course, so didn't interact with others, outside of our research project (which included an interview project). This year I am going back with a different school, to a different Oxford college, and looking ford to seeing the differences, as the programs on set up differently. One of the pluses for this was that our professor arranged an "insider's tour" of the BBC radio.

 

My opinion of the university assessment
Exams at end of course
KEY:
Liked it.
It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.
Essays and/or projects throughout the course
Overall
Personal comments:
I liked the readings, journal writings, interactive discussions,graduate project and field trips. It was not too taxing for a summer course, yet I learned alot, and luckily didn't need computer access.

Language difficulties
Social
KEY:
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: English
Was learning English a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
Personal comments:
Our course was the study of language and communications, with special discussions about the similarities and differences between our countries. I learned alot,and enjoyed the research- all the tv, magazines, newspapers, radio, and ads that I could possibly want....

 

EXPENSES    
by amandadenny, San Jose State University, San Jose, United States
Literature, Independent
The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
I didn't want/need to work
Personal spending habits:
Well, it's hard not to want to experience nearly everything when you're outside of your home country, so as a result, travel costs tripled! Try to watch eating out every day; it really adds up! Going to the grocery store/covered market and picking up breads and cheeses for the week saved a lot of money.
Food, Travel, Overall, Telephone: was more expensive than at home.
Nightlife: was the same price as at home.
Housing: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
It's also easy to be free with the plastic, so I'd recommend withdrawing a fixed amount of cash each week from a cash dispenser and trying to only spend that much (so very hard to do, but possible).

I wish I had known...
The program hosts approximately 35-40 American students each year, and we really only work with one another academically. I wish there had been more opportunity to interact with international students. We were obviously separated from other international students, and this made it more difficult to know any of them.
In my opinion:
Everybody loved it, you will too!

 

During my experience abroad, I ...
Became familiar with another culture
KEY:
Happened all the time.
Happened quite a lot.
Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
Traveled
Improved language skills
Met people from other countries
Became more independent
Partied a lot
Experienced a change in life
Advanced my studies/career
Personal recommendation:
Oxford is stunning; St. Anne's is one of the newer colleges, and while it does not have the history of some, it provided adequate accomodations. See as much of Oxford and its other colleges as possible-- don't just stay at St. Anne's!

 

FINAL COMMENTS

I had wanted to study abroad, but did not feel a semester program was right for me. Attending a summer study abroad program was perfect for me. It definitely strengthened my academics, and it gave me more independence than I had ever known before. The experience was life-changing for me, and I recommend it to anyone who has a great interest in English history and literature. You must be willing to work, but the work pays off. Overall, Oxford was a beautiful and welcoming city. I cannot wait to go back to the country I now consider a part of me.
