This program is perfect for lifelong learners and people interested in international relations, like me.


What a great experience - the background provided the reading list, the excellent lectures, my amazing classmates, and Oxford itself combined for an unforgettable week. My first Road Scholar trip will not be my last.


Road Scholar offers opportunities for me to step out of my comfort zone as a single traveler, increasing the places and topics I'll choose to explore. Thank you, Road Scholar, for the new opportunities!


This program is jam packed with educational lectures. The campus is beautiful and it is easy to walk into the city or take the busses. The group leader 'Ronnie' was warm and caring and always accessible. The other participants were knowledgeable and added to the discourse. The food was top notch making it difficult to exercise restraint.
