Top Study Abroad Providers: Academics
Study abroad is an opportunity for many things: freedom and independence, travel, exploring the world, and expanding one’s worldview… but it’s also a time to learn. Academics are an important part of studying abroad, and we ask all study abroad alumni to rate their academic experience abroad.
“In its close to sixty-year history, studying abroad at Wroxton College has always been considered both equal parts academic rigor and cultural exploration. To be recognized by Go Overseas as one of the Top Study Abroad Providers of 2022 for Academics speaks to the talent and dedication of Wroxton’s faculty, and to our belief that students can both work hard and learn, while experiencing an incredible semester abroad in the unique environment that is Wroxton College,” said Brian Swanzey, FDU’s University Director of Study Abroad.
