Quench your thirst for knowledge by studying at one of the world’s most famous universities while you experience Oxford as a student. Celebrating its 37th year in 2020, this two-week lifelong education program takes you on a rare adventure to Oxford, England, “City of Dreaming Spires”, and to the University of Oxford, famous as a great center of learning since the 12th century.
Free time during the program offers participants many opportunities to explore the city of Oxford, which is rich with cultural and leisure activities, offering a variety of museums, bookstores, theaters, restaurants, pubs, shops and natural settings to visit.
For complete program details, please thoroughly review the brochure.
If you did not receive a copy of the program brochure in the mail, but would still like to receive one, please contact Elizabeth Wheeler via email or by calling (517) 884-2106.
Registration for the program will open at 10 a.m. EST on Jan. 29, 2020 and will be conducted both online and by mail (for those that received a program brochure), although online registration is strongly preferred and will be conducted from this webpage.
Please note that the MSU Alumni Office cannot "reserve" or "hold" a spot in a course of study in advance of the Jan. 29, 2020 registration opening. This is an extremely popular program that frequently sells out. Space is limited to 47 people and courses of study are limited to 10-14 participants each and fill quickly.
Registrations are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. To register:
We will only be collecting a $500 per person deposit. The balance of the fee will be due May 15, 2020 and we will send you a statement in regards to this.
All online transactions are handled through the university’s secure, PCI-compliant server. Due to increased measures by MSU to ensure a secure credit card transaction, we can no longer accept credit card information over the phone or by mail for this program.
We strive to treat all participants fairly and equally and keep everyone safe while enjoying the program. To fully benefit from this experience, participants must be able to keep pace with the group. This program will be challenging for anyone who has difficulty walking, other mobility issues or some pulmonary conditions. There is a significant amount of walking, Oxford’s historic city center has many cobblestone streets and walkways and the age and layout of many buildings at Oxford can make them arduous to traverse as well. Excursions involve walking that may range from less than half an hour to a couple of hours and may necessitate walking on uneven, steep or hilly ground, uphill terrain, unpaved surfaces or climbing steep and narrow stairs. England is not ADA accessible to the extent that the United States is - ramps and elevators are not common and walking to a destination is often required.
We cannot accept responsibility for, or provide any on-going assistance to, any participant. This will ensure the smooth and efficient operation of the program for all participants.
We respectfully request that prospective participants honestly consider whether this program is a good fit for them and if there are any questions, we encourage prospective participants to contact Elizabeth Wheeler via email or by calling (517) 884-210 prior to registering for the program.
