"I enjoy studying at Oxford because there is nothing else in the world I could imagine myself doing. My focus is not studying for some future benefit but, studying for its own sake and for the intrinsic enjoyment reading brings."

Myles Zhang CC'19

"My European literature class in Denmark focused on how place is written into texts. The techniques that we used for mapping are something that I decided to adapt and use for my senior essay at Columbia. The intersection of literature and visuality is something that has come to inform my studies at Columbia."

Anvita Budhraja CC'18

"Thanks to the Political Science courses I was able to take via the Berlin Consortium for German Studies, I successfully applied to an MA program in International Relations with a focus on the EU at the Leiden University, the Netherlands. I plan to lean on the German skills I developed at the BCGS in my comparative parliamentary analysis course."

"Being abroad allowed me to pursue new academic interests, particularly history and philosophy of science. As a biology major, I had exposure to learning about science and conducting scientific experiments in the lab."

Amelia Sawyers CC'19

"Going abroad helped me understand new environments, interact with local communities, and be comfortable stepping outside of my comfort zone it was my first step in setting my newfound path into motion."
