Best College Review
In fall 2014, Western signed an agreement with the University of Evansville (Indiana) to become a partner school with Harlaxton College in the United Kingdom. Harlaxton's program has been ranked the No. 1 study-abroad experience for American students by BestCollegeReviews.org.

study abroad at Harlaxton College in the UK
Harlaxton College is in a 150-room manor house set in the picturesque English countryside. It provides a distinctive backdrop for the top-rated study-abroad program. Students can choose to spend an entire semester at Harlaxton, or they may opt for one of its five-week summer course offerings. The manor sits amid green pastures and rolling hills typical of the English countryside, on the edge of Harlaxton village, two miles outside Grantham, about an hour north of London. 

BestCollegeReviews.org chose Harlaxton as the top study-abroad institution based on the following criteria:

  • The program is open to no more than 500 students, providing an intimate experience while abroad.
  • The program is at least a semester long.
  • Faculty from the students home university work with the students internationally, traveling with them, teaching abroad or overseeing the program.
  • The university has a specific location internationally; students are not simply enrolling at international universities.
