Claire E Bunn, Maymester 2019 Participant
Oxford was a life-changing, eye-opening experience. Coming from a small town, the experience of going abroad changed my viewpoint in ways immeasurable. It made the world, and all the opportunities within it, seem more accessible. Class at Oxford also changed my academic mindset and pushed me to think in ways I am not typically asked to. Rather than lectures, the class centered around readings and our thoughts and interpretations. Oxford made me a better student in many ways, but more importantly, it made me a better person.

Maymester 2018 Participant
I will carry this experience with me all my life. I can only imagine how UGA managed to fit so many wonderful academic explorations and cultural experiences into one Maymester. I am truly thankful to everyone involved in making this possible and highly recommend the program to anyone interested.

Maymester 2019 Participant
This program allowed me to learn from a fantastic professor in the Oxford style, while also providing enough time for me to explore all that the town of Oxford has to offer. Between engaging conversations in the classroom, a variety of museums and parks to visit, and the plethora of fish and chips, there was never a dull moment!

Testimonial:
I have a better understanding of graduate school, and I think that I have acquired more of a leaning toward pursuing a doctoral degree. I had also never seriously considered a graduate program outside of the United States, but I now will seriously consider pursuing such a program. Academically, I have a more sophisticated background in reading research papers and writing essays, which will probably prove valuable as I move forward in my academic career.
