Wroxton College is located in the rural heart of England, a short distance from Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon. It offers a peaceful environment for learning amid 56 beautiful acres of lawns, lakes, gardens and woodland. During the semester, students are housed in a fully modernized 17th-century Jacobean mansion that was once the home of Lord North, England’s Prime Minister during the American Revolution.
A semester at Wroxton is carefully designed to provide a complete, integrated study abroad experience, combining a high quality academic program with the opportunity to travel and experience new cultures. Lectures, seminars and distinctive British tutorials teach courses given by highly qualified professors and distinguished guest lecturers from the worlds of business, government and the performing arts.
Wroxton’s close proximity to Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, London and Birmingham offers easy access to leading cultural and entertainment centers that provide an important dimension to the program. Many one-day and weekend trips have been planned for the students, including visits to Warwick Castle, Stonehenge, Canterbury, Brighton and Blenheim Palace, to name a few. With the mainland of Europe only a short distance away, the students can participate in a planned trip to Paris and northwest France, and will also have time to visit other European cities during the spring travel break.
Since Fairleigh Dickinson University opened its British campus in 1965, Wroxton has been chosen as the overseas study site for students from more than 250 colleges and universities nationwide.
