A student studying abroad with Hertford College, University of Oxford - Visiting Students Program
My year abroad was beyond worthwhile. I gained a sense of individual accomplishment, growth, and pride in my academic work due to the tutorial system. I also learned how to have a more balanced social life with my work since your weekly schedule is largely self-organized. With such a flexible schedule I was able to open my sched... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned A LOT about myself and what I need as a person. I need a community, I need a support system, I need people to share experiences with. Not all the time - as I knew as a self proclaimed independent before departing - but there is a difference between valuing alone time and living off of it.

About

Hertford College is an excellent choice if you want to study abroad as a visiting student!


  • We have a high quality and well established Visiting Student Programme with a dedicated team of people to support your academic and social welfare

  • The college is small and friendly so it is easy to make friends with our regular students

  • We are right in the centre of Oxford, opposite the world famous Bodleian library and the beautiful Sheldonian concert hall, as well as being within easy walking distance of faculty libraries, lecture theatres, bookshops and cafes

  • Our accommodation blocks are adjacent to the River Thames and ideal if you want to try your hand in our college rowing clubs 

As a Hertford visiting student you automatically become a “registered visiting student”.  This is really important as it gives you an official status with the University of Oxford so you get a university card and therefore:

  • You have reading rights in the  enormous Bodleian and other university libraries

  • You can take books out of the Faculty libraries

  • You can go to the large number of  lectures and seminars open to Oxford undergraduates

  • You can join the wide variety of university societies and sports clubs, including the renowned debating society – the Oxford Union.
