Study abroad at Oxbridge for GS students?

EfelchizenEfelchizen Registered User Posts: 14 New Member
Hi guys! I'm new to this place and have just submitted my freshman application to GS.

I randomly checked some study abroad programs and the Oxbridge one seems to be pretty attractive but the program description states that it is only open to CC students. I got sort of confused as GS runs the same curriculum, so I'm just wondering whether this program is also open to GS students.

Any input from experienced study abroad applicant?

    Although there may be a specific program for CCers, it's definitely possible to study abroad,
    Oxford / Cambridge included, as a GS student. If and when you come to Columbia, ask your advising dean about it.

    I've known people who've studied in the Middle East, the Far East, and the UK. All GSers.

    To add to that, there's someone in the GS office - a guy who is a Harvard educated attorney - who's job it is to connect GSers with fellowship opportunities after college.

    So, if you've ever fancied yourself a possible Rhodes Scholar, there's someone on staff who is ready to help you fulfill that dream.

    Unfortunately for GS in particular you shouldn't get your hopes up for a Rhodes - it's one of the few fellowships that discriminates by age - you have to be 23 or less when you apply.
