6 Famous Americans Who Have Studied Abroad
One of the most famous but controversial American presidents, Bill Clinton, chose to study abroad at some point in his life. Clinton served as the 42nd president of the United States, namely from 1993 to 2001. Besides being a famous American politician, he was also an attorney, serving as Attorney General of Arkansas from 1977 to 1979.
Although he is a Native American born and raised in Arkansas, he chose to explore the education system on other continents as well. Clinton attended Georgetown University, University College – Oxford in England, and Yale Law School.
So, he studied at Oxford University for about two years because he was a recipient of the Rhodes Scholarship (the most prestigious international scholarship program that offers students around the world the opportunity to study at the University of Oxford). Nevertheless, he never ended up getting a degree from Oxford.
