Georgia College in Oxford
As the state's designated public liberal arts university, Georgia College offers motivated students the opportunity to pursue independent (tutorial) study in Oxford, England. There are two study tracks that students can enter: Regent’s Park College and The Oxford Overseas Study Course. Both programs offer similar tutorial study options, but the experiences and requirements differ based on each program. Regent’s Park College has a minimum GPA of 3.7 for consideration, and The Oxford Overseas Study Course has a minimum GPA of 3.5 for acceptance.
Program costs for each experience will differ. Prices may vary due to the U.S. dollar-British pound sterling rate. Financial Aid may be applicable; and Georgia College institutional scholarships are available. Please see the Assistant Director of Education Abroad, Liz Havey, for more specific information.
"To anyone thinking of studying abroad, I would say that it is a wonderful experience and they should not pass up. There is a program for everyone, but I would especially recommend going to Oxford. And, whether for the summer, semester, or year, if you want to go abroad, with savings, scholarships, and the help of those at the Bone House, you can find a way to make it affordable. I think everyone should study abroad at least once. You are put in a new environment with new learning methods and forced to meet people and grow intellectually and culturally. If possible, I would recommend going for a longer period for a more immersive experience. I have been at Oxford two months, and even that does not feel long enough. I will forever cherish the memories and friendships I have made."
