Oxford University, England

Baylor in Oxford Baylor in Oxford is a study-abroad program that offers Baylor students the opportunity to live and to study in Oxford, "the city of dreaming spires." Baylor students live at Christ Church, affectionately called "the House," the largest and most prestigious of Oxford colleges. We take our meals in the magnificent Great Hall, have classes overlooking Tom Quad, and have the opportunity to worship in Christ Church Cathedral.

After class, students may stroll through Christ Church meadow, punt along the River Isis, or fall asleep under the "Jabberwocky" tree. Christ Church is the setting for portions of Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited, Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, and numerous scenes from the Harry Potter movies.

University of St. Andrews:

St. Andrews crest (w x h, 0 KB) Founded in the fifteenth century, the University of St. Andrews is Scotland’s oldest university, and the third oldest in the United Kingdom, after Oxford and Cambridge. Many of its classes and offices are housed in beautiful old stone buildings, which are located throughout the small, quaint, cobble-stoned, and tree-lined streets of the historic town, St. Andrews, with its 18,000 people. Set on the beautiful Fife coast surrounded, on the one side, by miles of open countryside, and stone-fenced hills where sheep roam and 17th and 18th century farmhouses are not uncommon, and on the north and east side, by the North Sea, St. Andrews is a university town with both ancient ruins and one of the world’s most famous golf courses, the Old Course. For more than a thousand years St. Andrews has been the focal point of bishops and kings, conformists and dissenters, martyrs and saints, and scholars and students (and, of course, golfers galore!).

The Old Course greets you as you motor in on Fourth Street from Dundee. The ruins of the castle and a large Cathedral, consecrated in 1388 under Robert the Bruce, dominate the landscape near the bay. While, also on North Street, St. Salvator’s Chapel, with its high clock tower, is one of the finest examples of medieval architecture in Scotland, and nearby it are remembrances of martyrs. This town and this university are dear to Christians, both Catholics and Protestants.
