"The overall program was exceptional and an extraordinary opportunity." Matt S., SCU (2012)
"Excellent program - tutors were wonderful... Santa Clara's faculty Directors went out of their way to make it enjoyable. Thank you!" [Anonymous] University of Calgary (2011)
"The most amazing experience of my life both academically and in regards to future career." [Anonymous] SCU (2011)
"After researching all seven ABA approved law programs at Oxford, it became clear to me that the Santa Clara program was the best. The most striking aspect of the program is the fact that actual Oxford professors are used, rather than simply importing domestic professors from the home university. . . As a non-Santa Clara student I was immediately welcomed . . . we all bonded within the first few days. The Santa Clara program is one of the few programs that can boast the ability to grant its students access to the famous Bodleian Library, and even the more exclusive law library at All Souls College. From start to finish, the Santa Clara program is first class all the way and well worth the investment."
James Cleavenger, Eugene, OR (2006)
"My first year at law school was intimidating. I died at the thought of attending a professor's office hours to ask for help. I just couldn't get over the fear that my questions were irrelevant or elementary - stupid even. I needed a way to get over my fears, so I enrolled in the Summer Abroad Program at Oxford, hoping the experience would help me gain the confidence to better interact with my professors and peers. Knowing the tutorial program would force me to have one-on-one time with a professor once a week meant I had to jump in head first and discuss the subject matter that initially intimidated me. Once I met with Professor Roger Smith, my fears were something of the past. I became engaged in conversations about my courses, so much so that our regular hour and a half sessions started to run past the time requirement. The process gave me opportunities to address my concerns or to voice questions I couldn't find the confidence to verbalize before. The Summer Abroad Program at Oxford helped me open up and realize the confidence I needed to get the most out of my educational and professional experiences; it was an learning experience that I carry with me throughout my studies, as an intern and in life."
Michael Avramidis, Santa Clara (2008)
"The experience was truly amazing! The one-on-one tutorial method was intense. The program was a lifetime event for me."
Mike Percy, SCU (2005)
