Full Course List
Oxbridge in New York takes place at Barnard College, an independent liberal arts college established in 1889 and affiliated with Columbia University since 1900. Students choose a Major and a Workshop for the month while exploring New York-courses take full advantage of the museums, advertising firms, hedge funds, and shows that make the city so famous. In their free time, they can go to a Major League Baseball game, a Broadway show, Coney Island, or take part in a full program of college visits, including NYU, Yale, UPenn, and a college fair.
Accommodation and Rooms
In New York, students live in rooms that are occupied by undergraduates during the year. Students are housed in singles or doubles. The rooms are dorm-style and have shared facilities.
Students have access to common areas within the residences as well as a variety of sporting and educational facilities (gyms, basketball courts, tennis courts, pitches, libraries). Oxbridge provides every program with computers, so students have daily access to email and social media. The program staff maintains message boards and distributes mail every day.
Students enjoy breakfast and dinner in their residence's dining halls. Breakfast is primarily continental style with choices such as cereal, yogurt, fruit, toast, coffee, and tea. Several options are available at dinner, including a vegetarian dish and a salad bar. Special dinners are regularly held, and each program ends with a formal banquet. Students are responsible for their own lunch, which can be purchased from a college snack bar or one of the many sandwich shops, small restaurants, patisseries, or bodegas near each residence.
After the Program
Shortly after the program, all students and their parents receive a comprehensive set of grade reports, presenting their course syllabus and highlighting their specific contributions and achievements within their course(s). Most of our alumni later ask for additional copies to include in their college applications.
