Oxford Program At A Glance

The 2017 Oxford Summer Program will be held July 2 to August 5. Students will live, attend classes, and take meals in historic Brasenose College, which is located on Radcliffe Square in the center of Oxford. Founded in 1262, Brasenose College's list of famous alumni includes Monty Python's Michael Palin and former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron.

Due to accreditation standards, students may enroll in no more than 6 credit hours, and may not enroll in classes that meet for more than 220 minutes per day.  We recommend students enroll for 6 credit hours, which for Summer 2017 means enrolling in any two of the four 3-credit hour classes offered.

The courses will be taught by American and English faculty and will be letter graded, with a final examination or paper. Credit in all courses will be granted by the University of Oklahoma College of Law.

Classes will meet 2 hours per day, Monday through Thursday for five weeks, leaving several long weekends for travel and sight-seeing. In addition to class offerings, the Program will also offer formal and informal activities for students and faculty. Scheduled program activities currently include a Champagne reception on the evening of arrival, a field trip by motor coach to "Legal London", and "High Table" dinners to open and close the program. These activities are included in the cost of the Program. 

The 2017 Program is limited to 40 students.

Housing and Meals

Students will live in Brasenose College. Rooms are for single occupancy and are equipped with desks and other study facilities. Brasenose College has limited accommodations for married couples or children. Students who wish to bring spouses or children must contact the Director to determine whether suitable accommodations are available. Spouses and others accompanying enrolled students must pay for meals and housing. 

Provided meals include breakfast and dinner Monday through Thursday. Meals are served in Brasenose College’s historic Dining Hall.  

Occupants of Brasenose College are subject to standards of conduct applicable to Brasenose students. The privilege of residing at Brasenose may be terminated for behavior such as vandalism or trespassing into private areas of the College.


Students will be responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and from Oxford. As flights fill up early, students are urged to make arrangements for their travel as soon as possible.

Special Assistance

England, Oxford, and Brasenose College are accessible to individuals with disabilities. Any student with disabilities should submit documentation to the University of Oklahoma College of Law so that appropriate arrangements can be made. Students needing special assistance on examinations due to disabilities should contact the Director immediately.
