Study abroad to Oxford or Cambridge can be an excellent enhancement to your Amherst academic experience! With the tutorial style of teaching, study to the Oxbridge colleges (small colleges make up the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge) 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). 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.
