“The courses at Oxford were engaging explorations of International Human Rights Law. The classroom discussions explore all aspects of this body of law and draw upon the rich experiences and perspectives of people from all over the world. They are especially remarkable because of the combination of experienced and knowledgeable professors that conduct the classes, and the diverse array of individuals that make up the student body.

There are many exciting things to do while at Oxford; the city is only an hour drive to London and many historic landmarks, such as Bath and Stonehenge. Traveling to and from Oxford is incredibly easy, and there are a variety of buses and trains that can take you anywhere in England. Students often take advantage of Oxford’s central location by going on weekend trips to the coast of England, Dublin, and Amsterdam.”
