Oxford University and Surroundings
Located 54 miles northwest of London, the ancient city of Oxford is home to a renowned university that dates from the twelfth century. The city enjoys a remarkably rich artistic and cultural life, and is within easy reach of splendid countryside and unspoiled villages. The city and its university provide an exciting setting for a study program in law.
The University of Oxford began as a confederation of independent colleges. The extensive grounds and magnificent buildings of the colleges still exist, each as a self-contained academic unit with a dining hall, classrooms, student living and recreational facilities, and faculty offices.
Students are associate members of St. Anne’s College, one of the 40 colleges that make up the University of Oxford. Students have access to dining, computers, library, sports, and all other student-related facilities at the college. Students reside in a spacious new house in North Oxford (see photos), within easy walking distance of St. Anne’s and the entire university complex. Students have library privileges at the university’s Bodleian Library, one of the world’s most famous research libraries.
