Randolph-Macon College students have the opportunity to participate in an exceptional opportunity: a month-long study-abroad adventure at Wroxton College in Oxfordshire, England. The all-inclusive program, which runs May 27- June 24, 2017, gives students the chance to live in and explore England—all while earning six college credits in four weeks. Participants will take two classes while at Wroxton: one taught by an R-MC professor, and one taught by a Wroxton professor.

Idyllic Environment + Tailor-Made Experience
Wroxton College—an overseas campus of Farleigh Dickenson University—is located northwest of London. Students will live in a 17th-century manor house on the picturesque Wroxton campus, which is a short distance from Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, and London. The college is also within easy reach of theaters, concert halls, museums, galleries, restaurants and major shopping areas.

Students can tailor their Wroxton experience by choosing one course taught by an R-MC professor (Comparative Education; or International Business Concepts), and one course taught by a Wroxton professor (The Anatomy of Contemporary Britain; or The Development of British Painting).

Learning Outside the Classroom
In addition to taking classes, students in the program will visit some of England’s most famous destinations. They'll travel to Oxford, Cambridge, Bath, Stratford-Upon-Avon, London, and Stonehenge, a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire. The all-inclusive program ($6,600) includes airfare; six college credits; room and board; insurance; and excursions.

Study, Travel, Friendship
"My Randolph-Macon education has been enhanced by my study-abroad experience at Wroxton," says Amanda Metell '17, a chemistry and history major. "By incorporating travel into the curriculum, I journeyed throughout much of England and met people from all over the world."
