Go global in your college search

Explorations at Oxford + London walk you through some of the most famous colleges and universities in the U.K. and the world. Take your college search international with inside looks at Oxford, University College London, and Imperial College London. 

Campus tours

Oxford University

The oldest university in the English-speaking world (founded in the 12th century!), Oxford is made up of 36 separate colleges. Though you’ll be based at Worcester College during your week at Oxford, you’ll have the opportunity to tour other Oxford colleges.

University College London

Founded nearly 200 years ago in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome women as well as students of diverse religious and social backgrounds. It boasts a wealth of resources like museums, libraries, theaters, hospitals, and medical institutes.

Imperial College London

Just across from verdant Kensington Gardens and down the road from Buckingham Palace, Imperial is known for cutting-edge science, engineering, medicine, and business programs. It’s also surrounded by free museums and incredible dining options. 

Enhance your college application

In addition to the compelling and memorable experiences you’ll gain through Explorations at Oxford + London, you’ll receive a written performance evaluation from your instructor at the end of your program. These comments on your work, contributions, and areas of strength can be a valuable addition to your college applications. 

Get the inside scoop on U.K. admissions



The U.K. university experience

Applying to—and attending—college in the U.K. is a little different than in the United States. (There’s no Common Application, for one thing.) If you’re considering applying to U.K. universities, you’ll get a thorough roadmap to the admissions process during Explorations at Oxford + London.


Navigating the Oxbridge application

Despite sharing a centuries-old rivalry, Oxford and Cambridge Universities also manage to share an application. There are some fine points to keep in mind, however—for one, you can’t apply to both schools at the same time! That’s just one of the many Oxbridge application details you’ll learn about in Explorations at Oxford + London.
