Sponsor: The College of Global Studies, Arcadia University

Location: Oxford, England


Students can enroll directly at Oxford University and study in the sciences, social sciences or arts at one of six colleges, each with its own unique character that has been shaped by centuries of history and tradition. Students take part in the tutorial system and focus on one particular subject, for studies that are driven by their intellectual interests, self-motivation, and curiosity.

Program Type: Affiliated


  • Full Year
  • Fall
  • Winter/Spring

Term Notes: Students are strongly urged to consider Full Year study at Oxford due to the tutorial system as well as limited semester placements and tutorial topics.


Although Northwestern requires a minimum 2.5 GPA, Oxford requires a 3.7 GPA. Students should also have a solid background in the subjects they plan to take.
