Home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford is a magical place to study. The university’s history stretches back to 1249, and it has made countless contributions to the world through its alumni and research. Oxford’s 38 colleges dominate the architectural look and feel of the city. Beautiful courtyards, spires and vaulted arches make much of it look the same as it did hundreds of years ago.

Other landmarks include the breathtaking Bodleian libraries, the Ashmolean Museum with its Ancient Greek-style Ionic columns and the Museum of Natural History. The river offers punting and scenic, leafy views, and there is gorgeous countryside within easy reach.
