I gained an appreciation for the similarities of people across cultures. It was beyond worthwhile. It was a life changing experience. - Austin College View Entire Review
Absolutely completely worthwhile, I learned so much about how to think and what it really means to be a student. I was given insight into different parts of my personality that I never though existed. I was given the opportunity to meet some of the most wonderful people I have ever met in my life. I was also faced with some peop... - Villanova University View Entire Review
Yes, I learned a lot about my subject and my own academic needs. I know now that I don't want to attend graduate school for literature, because the solitary nature of that work does not suit me. However, I will carry the things I learned about England and lit in general with me for the rest of my life. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned about the culture, different study methods, time management. I was able to travel. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned to write fast. If you're thinking about grad school, you should definitely think about Oxford. If you're a little more career oriented, it may not be the best option (hint: LSE) - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Education should not be restrictive and should be rewarding! It was definitely worthwhile because of the tutors and knowledge. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned how big the world is and now my new goal is to travel and experience different lifestyles. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
Everyone expects to change after going abroad, but it never happens the way we envision it to be. It's a subtle change-- something we realize only when we return and reflect back on our time abroad. I found my true character, I learned to draw inspiration from the life's simplicities, and led a balanced lifestyle. I explored the... - Austin College View Entire Review
It was extremely worthwhile. I learned a lot about many different cultures. - Austin College View Entire Review
Surprisingly for a study abroad program, what I gained the most from my time in the UK was academic. My tutor was a wonderful, helpful man, but he definitely pushed me. I learned a lot and became friends with him by the end. I also loved Oxford's 6-week-long Spring break, which gave me a TON of time to travel around the conti... - Villanova University View Entire Review
Oxford was incredible. During my time there, I have fallen even more in love with academia and with England. I am now considering applying there for grad school at some point in the future. - Carleton College View Entire Review


University of Oxford, a member of the prestigious Russell Group,  is the world’s oldest English-speaking university, and ranks consistently as the top university in the world.

Established in 1096, the university consists of numerous semi-autonomous constituent colleges and halls, all of which maintain reputations as elite centers of learning. University of Oxford in its entirety is home to 24,000 students, approximately 11,000 of whom are international, from 160 countries.

Oxford is highly competitive, and world renowned for its high academic standards and research and teaching excellence. Your studies through Arcadia at one of six Oxford colleges will take place in the framework of the tutorial system.

This system requires intensive academic preparation and independent work, which you’ll then discuss one-on-one or in small groups with an assigned college tutor. This type of approach is excellent preparation for graduate level work.

This is a highly sought after and competitive opportunity for students at Junior or Senior standing with an excellent academic background, with early application deadlines.

You can apply to study the sciences, social sciences, or arts at one of six colleges: St. Anne’s, St. Catherine’s, St. Edmund Hall, Lady Margaret Hall, Mansfield College, or Hertford College. 

The Oxford academic year is three terms, and students can choose between fall term, spring two term, or a full academic year, depending upon the college into which they’re accepted. Students applying to Hertford College, St Anne’s College, and Lady Margaret Hall have the option of extending the fall term to a full semester through special academic options. 

Each college at Oxford maintains its own social events and distinct college culture, while drawing from the amenities and characteristics of Oxford as a whole.Ancient and storied architecture blend with modern clubs and music venues, church steeples with pubs and eateries, and cloistered gardens with impressive theaters.

All these contrasts and synergies make Oxford a quintessential university town. You’ll find yourself in proximity to both quaint local villages and London (an hour away by train).

Travel to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses. Here is a sampling:

  • Harry Potter Studio Tour

  • Tower of London

  • London Street Art Tour

  • Hampton Court Day Excursion

  • Keats house

  • and more...
