Dartmouth Oxford Exchange

Dartmouth Oxford Exchange Student: Eric Jung '17

This past winter, Eric Jung ’17 participated in the exchange program sponsored by the Rockefeller Center to Keble College in Oxford University to continue his studies as a government major and public policy minor.

While at Keble, Eric really appreciated the depth of the tutorial system and the classes at Oxford. “They get straight to the application and analysis… I definitely learned a lot in a very short amount of time,” Eric says.  Eric especially enjoyed learning to think logically. “[Classes] definitely taught me new ways of thinking that I’ve never thought about before—like how to find flaws in an argument, or logical fallacies,” Eric says.

Outside of the classroom, Eric enjoyed Oxford’s housing system. “Oxford has these different colleges, and you’re kind of insulated in that college.” He especially loved the fact that each college at Oxford has its own library. During the term, Eric also took advantage of the opportunity to travel in Europe, flying to Sicily with the other Dartmouth students in the program.

Dartmouth Oxford Exchange Student: Devyn Greenberg '17

Devyn Greenberg '17 participated in the Dartmouth-Oxford Exchange Program at Keble College during 2016 Winter Term. Rockefeller Center Student Program Assistant for Communications, Niki Bakhru '17, interviewed her once she was back on campus about her term abroad.

Dartmouth Oxford Exchange Student: Megan Mishra '17

According to Megan Mishra ’17, participating in the Dartmouth Exchange Program at the University of Oxford’s Keble College was part of her D-Plan from the very start after talking to then senior Jonathan Pedde ’14 who had gone on the exchange the previous year.

As a fully integrated member of the Oxford community, students take courses in the British tutorial system that count towards their majors. Megan took two tutorials, one in public economics and one in microeconomic theory and policy. She found the specificity and depth of discussion each week challenging yet really rewarding. “The anticipation of an in-depth exchange with the professor, often one-on-one, pushed me to thoroughly study the material ahead of time,” explained Megan. “I think the tutorial system of learning really forces you to master the subject.” 

Dartmouth Oxford Exchange Student: Ryan Schiller '17

The Dartmouth-Oxford Exchange Program sends up to four Dartmouth undergraduates per term to Oxford University’s Keble College. As a fully integrated member of the Oxford community, students take courses in the British tutorial system that count towards their majors. 

This past fall, Ryan Schiller ’17 participated in the economics exchange program at Keble; Ryan was one of four Dartmouth students on the program.  Ryan’s studies at Keble came in the form of two tutorials, one in public economics and one in international economics.  “I really enjoyed the tutorials,” Ryan said.  He said that he thought the tutorials were focused and specific, “almost like a PhD program.” He said that he appreciated the attention and specificity he faced at Keble with frequent one-on-one tutoring sessions, and that while they often didn’t cover the breadth that Dartmouth courses offer, the depth made them different and worthwhile educational experiences.

Rockefeller Center hosts Dartmouth-Oxford Exchange at Summer Dinner

Dartmouth students attending Keble College in the Dartmouth-Oxford Exchange for the 2012-2013 academic year met at a dinner in Morrison Commons on Wednesday, August 9, 2012.  The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center, in partnership with the Off-Campus Programs Office, sends 4 students to Keble College per term during the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms of each year. Keble College, in return, sends four students to Dartmouth during the summer term.  At the dinner, some of these students met to learn about each other’s cultures.  Christian Butcher, a Keble student not involved in the program, was visiting Sarah Herdan, one of the summer Keble exchange students, so he also attended and contributed to the conversation.    Dartmouth and Keble Students involved in the exchange for 2012-2013 include:
