Background

The UGA at Oxford Program is proud to offer a Junemester Program at Oxford. The program offers students the opportunity to travel and learn while living in Oxford. The University of Oxford whose rich academic traditions date as far back as at least the late-11th century has been playing host to foreign students since 1190. Today, nearly two hundred and twenty students a year from five of UGA’s largest colleges (Arts and Sciences, Business, Journalism and Mass Communication, Public and International Affairs, and Law) live and study in this bustling, modern University city whose dreaming medieval spires recall nearly a thousand years of political intrigue, religious rebellion, civil strife and regicide, as well as innovation, education, and scientific achievement. Famous Oxford graduates include Oscar Wilde, author, Lawrence of Arabia, soldier and diplomat, Indira Gandhi and Manmohan Singh, Prime Ministers of India, Stephen Hawking, theoretical physicist, Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair, British Prime Ministers, and Tim Berners Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web.

 

Accommodations

The University of Georgia's at Oxford Center located in North Oxford. The large, elegantly furnished rooms hold two to four students, many with private baths.
