The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world, and the second-oldest surviving university in the world. The UGA at Oxford program was founded nearly twenty years ago. Students take seminars and tutorials at Franklin College and will have associate membership in Keble College, which allows them to dine in college with Oxford students, have access to the College libraries, common rooms and pubs, and to participate in the College's social, cultural, and sporting societies and events.
The City of Oxford is located in central southern England, about an hour by bus and rail from London. Buildings in Oxford demonstrate an example of every English architectural period since the arrival of the Saxons, including the iconic, mid-18th-century Radcliffe Camera. Oxford is known as the "city of dreaming spires", a term coined by poet Matthew Arnold in reference to the harmonious architecture of Oxford's university buildings.
Students will earn between twelve and fifteen semester hours in a wide variety of disciplines. During the first four weeks, classes will be taught by both UGA and Oxford faculty, using an intensive seminar format. During the remaining eight weeks, classes will be taught by Oxford faculty using the tutorial format, an intensive system of individualized or small-group instruction traditional at Oxford. The small groups are a maximum of three students per group, but more often than not, these will be individual meetings. Students do a great deal of reading on their own and produce several papers over the course of the term. The system demands a great deal of responsibility from the student, which is why a GPA of 3.5 or better is recommended.
