Programme Features

The programme will take a distinct Anglo-French approach to learning where Oxford academics are paired with their French counterparts across Architecture, Arts, and Literature & Creative Writing.

The programme encompasses intensive working in seminar groups along with guided, independent study in the afternoons. The approach to learning is participative throughout, aimed to ignite intellectual curiosity about the shared cultures and artistic outputs of the two nations.

During the course, you will:

  • Be taught by, and participate in plenary sessions with, leading academics from the University of Oxford, and top-rank French counterparts, all experts in their fields.
  • Be part of a stimulating and immersive group of students, bringing a wide range of experiences to the cultural and intellectual exchanges that underpin the programme.
  • Have access to the on-site library and IT facilities to support you with your academic work, as well as the College’s Hub café and Common Room which is the University’s only Passivhaus building.
  • Explore Oxford’s museums, and visit Oxford Colleges, Cotswolds’ villages, and Blenheim Palace, guided by College Fellows.
  • Experience Oxford College life, living and sharing meals together in a friendly and supportive learning environment – and even try an outing on the College punt if you please!
  • Attend an opening reception and Welcome Drinks upon arrival.
  • Enjoy a black-tie Oxford formal dinner.

All courses will be taught at an introductory level for non-specialists aged 18 and above, and no prior knowledge is required. You will study in small groups, of up to 15 participants, taught by highly-experienced academics.
