Description

Oxford is a city in the South East region of England and the county town of Oxfordshire. Oxford is a beautiful city of stunning architecture, history and culture. There are ancient and modern colleges, fascinating museums and galleries, and lots of parks, gardens and green spaces in which to relax. Also, the city centre is small enough to cover on foot.

At Oxford, you will have the opportunity to visit the University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology called The Ashmolean museum founded in 1683. The world-renowned collections at Ashmolean museum range from Egyptian mummies to contemporary art, telling human stories across cultures and across time. The Ashmolean’s collections are extremely diverse,  representing most of the world’s great civilisations, with objects dating from 8000 BC to the present day. At the museum, there are the world’s greatest collection of Raphael drawings,  the most important collection of Egyptian Pre-Dynastic sculpture and ceramics outside Cairo, the only great Minoan collection in Britain, outstanding Anglo-Saxon treasures, and the foremost collection of modern Chinese painting in the Western world.

University of Oxford

As the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford is a unique and historic institution. There is no clear date of foundation, but teaching existed at Oxford in some form in 1096 and developed rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.
