Living in Oxford for a year will be an unforgettable experience. The city and University offer a blend of tradition and cosmopolitan modernity, housing some of the most advanced research laboratories in the world alongside medieval colleges and dreaming spires.
As a member of a college, as well as part of the Business School and Law Faculty, MLF students have a huge choice of clubs and organisations to get involved with, at a variety of levels. Several MLF students have competed in sporting events for the University, achieving “Blues” status, and many have rowed for their college in the University’s inter-collegiate races in the spring and summer. Others have been involved in drama, dance and music, and in a range of societies and organisations, from journalism to debating.
The city itself offers a variety of entertainments, from enjoying the choristers singing from the top of Magdalen Tower on May morning, to punting on the waterways or exploring the Ashmolean, Britain’s oldest museum. Oxford offers a broad selection of restaurants, and live music venues. Students can even enjoy a drink in the Eagle and Child pub, where CS Lewis and JRR Tolkein used to meet.
Oxford benefits from being close to London (only an hour away by train) and to various international airports, as well as being only a short journey from the local Cotswold countryside and from attractions such as Blenheim Palace, the birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill.
