The Oxbridge classroom isn’t limited to one room or building. Every Oxbridge course is designed to make the most of the extraordinary resources of the great cities in which the programs are taking place, so that students discover the city through the course and the course through the city. On any given day, the classroom might be a local museum, a research lab or hospital, the market square, or a nearby park. Some days, the teacher’s expertise is supplemented by discussions, workshops, and demonstrations run by vising guest speakers. This variety in both venue and content delivery are core to our academic philosophy and contribute to an interactive and immersive environment.
Extracurricular activities on The Oxford Tradition maintain a healthy balance between study and leisure, allowing students to relax and unwind while continuing to immerse themselves in their new home.
In their free time, students explore Oxford, taking in sights such as the castle, Christ Church College, and the world famous Bodleian Library. Students attend plays and sample the plethora of exotic, edible offerings served up in the famous Covered Market.
Additionally, there is a full sports program during which, if they wish, students can participate in English sports such as punting, cricket, and rugby.
Every college is both a chapter in the University's story and a glimpse into centuries of intellectual endeavor and academic tradition. From discovering Oxford's Pitt Rivers Museum to following in C.S. Lewis footsteps, students have almost unlimited opportunities to be out and about. One might find them browsing Blackwells' bookshop, visiting an exhibition at the famous Ashmolean Museum, watching a play outside Oxford's Norman castle, picnicking in the University Parks, or simply watching the world go by in a local café.
Although no week on an Oxbridge program is “typical”, the below provides a general overview of a week in the life of The Oxford Tradition student.
