Study abroad in Oxford is arranged through the Center for Global Education at CUA in coordination with the Oxford Programme for Undergraduate Studies (OPUS) in Oxford, and features a variety of custom-designed individual tutorials covering topics mostly in the liberal arts and taught by prominent university scholars. Students are placed in colleges considered among the best at Oxford University. Students can study either during the Michaelmas Term (fall semester), the Hilary Term (spring semester) or the late Trinity Term (summer), and have the option of taking a small group tutorial on C.S. Lewis, Shakespeare, or British Politics, along with two individual tutorials. Students live in student housing in and around the center of Oxford. This program provides qualified CUA undergraduate and graduate students with an opportunity to study at one of the world's most prominent and challenging schools.
