ABS PGDM International study trip to Oxford 2017 – a narration of experiences

An unparalleled experience unfolded for the ABS PGDM students on their International Study trip to Oxford in 2017.

Oxford having a skyline of domed theatres, dreaming spires and college gargoyles spoke to them of culture, history, and tradition. Gaining an insight into the history of the fascinating and majestic Christ Church College, one of Oxford University’s largest colleges, the Great Tudor Hall and Cathedral and the life of those dedicated to learning from the 13th century, was a humbling experience.

The awesome learning at Oxford Business College during ABS PGDM program’s international study trip to Oxford in 2017 will remain an unforgettable experience in many minds. A two and a half hour drive from Oxford brought the students to London which they discovered to be, one of the most cosmopolitan cities of the world-striding undeterred with confidence and elan, wrapped up in its rich history. To be in the land where royalty still exists was an experience in itself as a visit to the Buckingham Palace with a glimpse of the home and office of the reigning Monarch, was high on their list. Soaking in the atmosphere at Buckingham, strolling through the impeccably maintained gardens at the Palace, walking into the 19 staterooms to get a peep at history was a dream come true. The other attractions at London proved to be top entertainment for students. One wouldn’t think that a Ferris Wheel could be fun but when it was the London Eye, it took on a whole new dimension, as it gave a spectacular view of the city. Ambling through the Diagon Alley,created by the Warner Bros Studio, a connection with the magical boy Harry Potter sprung to life for most of his ardent fans, leaving behind an indelible experience to carry back home. From Piccadilly Circus to Borough Market and from Big Ben to the Tower of London, gorgeous expanses of green dotting the metropolis, the famous Hyde Park, Regent Park and several museums, London was amazingly unforgettable!

Returning home to India, students articulated their unbelievably enjoyable experiences in the following ways:

“I think I have had the best time of my life in Oxford and London. I have really no words to share my experience about this adventure trip with lots of memories. I had captured loads of memories and took all with me which I would cherish for my whole life. With this trip I engaged myself with a totally different culture and also saw that UK people also have love and affection for India. Seriously this kind of trip would never be possible again. I would like to thank ABS for such an opportunity. I have been missing each and every single moment spent there with all my colleagues since the day I came back. Hope will go back there again with the joy more than this.
Thank you.” …Piyush Bhargava
