Living in Oxford

Oxford is world famous for being a vibrant student city with an incredible amount to offer – plenty of excellent cafes, restaurants and traditional pubs, as well as many good cinemas, theatres and museums. The historic colleges of Oxford University are simply breathtaking and most are open to visitors. For those of you who are sporty, there is a wide range of gyms and leisure venues dotted around the city.

Oxford is an extremely safe city - a perfect choice, especially if it is your first visit to the UK, and an ideal environment in which to study and become familiar with English traditions and customs.

Oxford is a fantastic city to study in and I can’t recommend it enough! What I have enjoyed the most is trying out some traditional English pastimes like punting on the river and having afternoon tea and scones at the Grand Cafe. Something I would never get to experience back in Tokyo!
