Since we are going to spend most of our time in university of oxford, which is awesome, I did a little bit research on this world’s greatest university. The history of oxford is long and amazing. It’s the second-oldest university in the whole world and the oldest in the English-speaking country.
There are over 21,000 students at Oxford, including 11,723 undergraduates and 9,327 postgraduates. We all know that oxford is really good at humanity and literature majors. 53 per cent of undergraduates are studying for degrees in the humanities and social sciences, and 44 per cent in the medical, mathematical, physical and life sciences. From the university website, I got to know a little bit about oxford’s collegiate system. “The collegiate system is at the heart of the University’s success, giving students and academics the benefits of belonging to both a large, internationally renowned institution and to a small, interdisciplinary academic community.”
The main purpose of visiting oxford is to explore his museums and libraries. Oxford has the largest university library system in the UK, with over 100 libraries. The Bodleian Library is the University’s main research library, which I really cannot wait to see and want to compare it with our Suzzallo library. “Its priceless collections include the papers of six British Prime Ministers; a Gutenberg Bible; the earliest surviving book written wholly in English; a quarter of the world’s original copies of the Magna Carta; and almost 10,000 western medieval and renaissance manuscripts.”
I am really grateful for this opportunity to live and study in university of oxford, even though I am not officially an oxford student, I would really love to have a oxford student experience and explore this university as much as I can.
