60 students (approximately 20 each from the three colleges) will be housed either at historic Trinity College or the University of Georgia at Oxford Center. Trinity College, Oxford University, was founded in 1555 and is one of Oxford's most distinguished colleges. Trinity College is ideally located in the center of the city and has been praised by students for its architectural beauty and friendly atmosphere. The University of Georgia's at Oxford Center is located in North Oxford. The large, elegantly furnished rooms hold two to four students, and many have private bathrooms. All students will have access to the Trinity College dining hall, common rooms, computer labs and network, and college pub.
Students can earn six semester hours in a wide variety of disciplines. Tutorials will be taught using the tutorial format of individualized or small-group instruction. Tutorial groups are never larger than three students. Each tutorial class includes an excursion to a site in England related to the major themes in the course. See Courses Offered for a list of possible seminar and tutorial course choices in Summer 2015.
Approximately $6,400 plus in-state UGA tuition and fees. The cost of the program covers Oxford and Trinity College fees, room, most meals, study abroad insurance, and class excursions. Additional expenses include cost of personal items and travel. A voluntary group-rate flight is available. (Transient students are subject to an additional admission fee assessed by UGA Undergraduate Admissions.)
