About 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.

Hertford College was founded in 1284 – it is one of the oldest of Oxford University’s 39 colleges. Located in the centre of historic Oxford, our beautiful college boasts the Bridge of Sighs, one of the most famous sights of the city.

About Advanced English Language and British Culture Programme

This programme is designed for students looking for a truly international perspective on their economics and business studies, developing English language skills and deepening understanding of British Culture. As well as high-level English language classes, lively discussions and debate, we invite noted economic experts to give lectures and workshops.
