"Oxford is a world-class university, and it would be easy to draw parallels to Stanford. At the same time, one has access to different facilities and is surrounded by a whole new group of students. You can continue learning the same subject as at home in Palo Alto, or explore a completely new subject – either way you will have a novel experience."
"What made my experience in Oxford satisfying wasn’t just the academic learning, but also experiencing what it’s like to be a part of the fabric of Oxford-life. I wouldn’t necessarily do less work, I would just be more efficient with my work and manage my time better so that I could focus on the rest of life."
An integral part of the Oxford program is the tutorial system, the characteristic form of undergraduate instruction at Oxford University. Stanford students have often described the experience as "the single most challenging, yet rewarding academic experience" that they have had while an undergraduate at Stanford. Tutorials give you an opportunity to explore a subject one-on-one, in depth, with a professor within that respective field.
