Why study English in Oxford
Find out why this destination may be the right choice for you!
Home to the world’s oldest University, and part of Hogwarts, Oxford is a place that allows you to soak up a little bit of magic.
The ‘city of dreaming spires’ has buildings from every architectural period – from the 11th to the 18th century. It’s a city where the old meets the new and the ancient intertwines with the modern. You’re able to capture visions of the past, live the present and create your future whilst studying an English course here.
Take a tour of the Bodleian Library (opened in 1602!), get lost in the Ashmolean Museum for hours on end, along with Pitt Rivers, which have one of the best anthropological and archeological collections on earth! Take a stroll through Port Meadow, walk by the river or take a picnic by the canal.
Once you’re done with walking, stop by one of the many pubs, where some have been serving beer since 1242 – so they certainly know how to do it well! You may pass through Jericho, which is packed with eccentric places like Freud Cafe and The Old Bookbinders.
Come sunshine or snow, this city caters for all. Outdoor theatre events occur during the summer months, and in the winter, well, there’s no place better than to witness the Botanic Gardens right after a snowfall!
