Study abroad to Oxford or Cambridge in the tutorial teaching style could be an excellent enhancement to your Amherst academic experience and is often compared to graduate study. Students take tutorials with expert “tutors,” faculty and final year PhD students, and strengthen their research, writing and oral argument skills. In addition to this unique and challenging academic environment, students have the opportunity to live alongside local students and participate fully in college life. This session will teach you the ways you can apply for study to Oxford or Cambridge, e.g., direct enrollment or through a provider, and you will also learn what special arrangements we have, i.e., New College at Oxford.
Students who have studied abroad will also be attending and share with you their perspective. Application deadlines to study at Oxford or Cambridge are earlier in the year than most study abroad programs and attending this session will provide you with timelines, deadlines, and other important details.
Fun fact: Parts of the Harry Potter film The Goblet of Fire were filmed at New College.
