Junior finance major set to study abroad at Oxford University

Tiffany Pratts, a junior finance and economics major, plans to study abroad this summer at the prestigious Oxford University in London, England.

It was unclear at presstime how flight cancellations to Europe because of volcanic ash from Iceland might affect her plans. Pratts was due to leave the United States this week for the "finance capitol of the world."

The Oakland, Calif., native is the only student in her division to study abroad this year, according to Dr. Christian Fugar, dean of the business department. She will return to DU for the fall semester.

Pratt said she's vacationed in Paris and the Carribbean, but she's really excited about going to Europe.

"Aside from studying at one of the world's leading academic institutions and meeting people from different cultures than my own, I cannot wait to explore England and all its neighboring countries," she said.

Pratts said she found out about the opportunity from family, friends and surfing the Web.  Pratts explained the difficulty of studying abroad, "If you got the money and the will to do it; it can be done."

It will cost Pratts' family $16,100 for one semester of study at Oxford. She said it's worth it, quoting a report by Times Higher Education that rates Oxford as No. 4 in the world behind Harvard, Yale and Cambridge.
