BSU’s longest running study abroad program is back for the spring of 2024. Study in Oxford, England, while paying BSU tuition and fees and earning BSU credit! From the term before your departure until your return, we provide plenty of support and guidance along the way. During the first two months of Spring 2024, you’ll attend pre-trip orientation (INTL 1300 Educ Abroad Basics) before flying out to the UK on March 12th, 2024. Housing, most meals and field trips are included in the cost of the program.
- Program includes full room and board in Wycliffe Hall, which is walking distance from all of Oxford’s main attractions
- Field trips to Stonehenge, the Royal Dockyards at Portsmouth, Salisbury Cathedral, City of Bath and others
- Attend a performance of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Shakespeare’s home of Stratford upon Avon
- Enjoy easy excursions to London from Oxford with 24/7 bus service.
- Do your own travel to anywhere in Europe from Oxford over the 5-day Easter weekend
- Enroll in online credits from your major to continue on your academic plan, while also taking 6-9 International Studies credits that fulfil Core Curriculum (liberal education) requirements
Oxford: Oxford, a city in central southern England, revolves around its prestigious university, established in the 12th century. The architecture of its 38 colleges in the city’s medieval center led poet Matthew Arnold to nickname it the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’.
Wycliffe Hall: Wycliffe is a rich and diverse community in the beautiful and strategic setting of Oxford, a permanent private hall of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.
In this re-invented Eurospring experience, students will be able to continue with their course of study without interruption through the use of online courses. For the spring semester, students
are expected to enroll in 6-9 credits of regular BSU classes that are offered in an asynchronous distance format. Wycliffe Hall is equipped with EduRoam (https://eduroam.org/) which is a global hotspot system for educational use. It would be quite feasible for students to continue with distance classes while at Wycliffe.
