Princeton Program: Oxford-Princeton Exchange in Biochemistry
Princeton students have the same access to libraries, computing facilities, and health services as do regularly enrolled students. More than 200 clubs and societies are active at Oxford. At “Freshers’ Fair” in October, students can learn about the array of clubs, sports, music and drama societies, student newspapers, and the student-run radio station. The Oxford Union, founded in 1823, is famous for its debates and for attracting renowned speakers from around the world.
Each college’s Junior Common Room, open to all undergraduates, provides a place to relax with magazines and newspapers; it also functions much like the Undergraduate Student Government in representing students’ opinions and organizing a range of social events. Some colleges have their own dramatic and music groups as well as other organizations to accommodate students’ particular interests.
As this program is an exchange program, Princeton students become a member of the college from which an outgoing Oxford student comes. Information on each of these colleges is available in the Oxford Prospectus, available in the Office of International Programs and on the Oxford University website.
