Brief Introduction of University of Oxford

The University of Oxford is a collegiate research university in Oxford, England. There is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's second-oldest university in continuous operation. It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge. The two 'ancient universities' are frequently jointly referred to as 'Oxbridge'. The history and influence of the University of Oxford has made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world. The university is made up of 38 constituent colleges, and a range of academic departments which are organised into four divisions. All the colleges are self-governing institutions within the university, each controlling its own membership and with its own internal structure and activities. It does not have a main campus, and its buildings and facilities are scattered throughout the city centre. Undergraduate teaching at Oxford is organised around weekly tutorials at the colleges and halls, supported by classes, lectures, seminars, and laboratory work provided by university faculties and departments; some postgraduate teaching includes tutorials organised by faculties and departments. It operates the world's oldest university museum, as well as the largest university press in the world and the largest academic library system nationwide. The university is consistently cited as among the world's best.

Oxford is renowned for its stunning architecture and the prestigious University of Oxford. While many of the most spectacular buildings are connected to the university, there is far more to the city than the university campus. Wander its cobbled lanes and immerse yourself in its beauty and history; visit Port Meadow; explore the diverse Cowley Road; and enjoy a few drinks in one of the cities many watering holes.

Oxford, The City of Dreaming Spires, is famous the world over for its University and place in history. For over 800 years, it has been a home to royalty and scholars, and since the 9th century an established town, although people are known to have lived in the area for thousands of years. Nowadays, the city is a bustling cosmopolitan town. Still with its ancient University, but home also to a growing hi-tech community. Many businesses are located in and around the town, whether on one of the Science and Business Parks or within one of a number of residential areas. Throughout the year, thousands of tourists will travel in their throngs to Oxford for a casual day trip. Once there, they discover that it takes longer than a day to truly experience the City of Dreaming Spires. Despite this, Oxford is based perfectly for further exploring west. The landscape encircling Oxford radiates History, Culture and Beauty, alongside the odd shopping outlet.
