About Oxford

In the 8th century, the Anglo-Saxons found a shallow point - called a “ford” - in the River Thames, where oxen could cross the water. They named it “Oxenaforda.” The 13th century saw the beginnings of the University of Oxford's collegiate system. Oxford is still considered one of the best universities in the world, and it hosts our longest-running summer academic programs. Our students live in the same rooms as Oxford undergraduates, and they work with some of the leading academics who teach them. On our academic summer programs in Oxford, students choose two summer courses; coupled with English sports and tours of significant sites in British history.
