Oxford Program At A Glance

The 2021 Oxford Summer Program will tentatively be held July 4 to August 7. Students will reside, attend classes, and take meals at historic Worcester College. Worcester College was founded in 1714 and is located in the heart of Oxford on the grounds of the former Gloucester College. Benedictine monks were trained at Gloucester College beginning in the late 13th Century. Notable Worcester College alumni include United States Supreme Court Justice, Elena Kagan, former basketball legend and former U.S. Senator Bill Bradley, and actor from the Harry Potter movie series, Emma Watson.

Due to accreditation standards, students may enroll in 4 to 6 credit hours. Because financial aid providers typically require that student be enrolled in 5 credit hours to be considered full-time and receive aid, you may want to take that into account when picking classes.

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

Classes will meet approximately 2 hours per day, per class, Monday through Thursday for 5 weeks (for 3-credit hour classes), leaving several long weekends for travel and sight-seeing. In addition to our classes, 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 2021 Program is tentatively limited to 40 students.

Housing and Meals

Students will live in single, en suite rooms equipped with desks and Wi-Fi access. Worcester College has limited accommodations for couples. Students who wish to bring spouses, partners, or children must contact the Director to determine whether suitable accommodations are available. Spouses and others accompanying enrolled students must pay separately for meals and housing. 

Provided meals include breakfast and dinner Monday through Thursday. Meals will be served in the Worcester College 18th Century Dining Hall.  

Occupants of Worcester College are subject to standards of conduct applicable to Worcester students. The privilege of residing at Worcester may be terminated for misbehavior such as vandalism or trespassing into private areas of the College, plus any violation of law of Worcester College disciplinary rules.


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 Worcester 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.
