The Visiting Student Programme offers suitably qualified students the opportunity to come to Oxford as members of Mansfield College and Registered Visiting Students of the University of Oxford. We normally admit 35-40 VSP students per year, from Ivy League and other top US institutions and a few from other non-EU countries. Students study arts, humanities, and social science subjects for one year. Occasionally places are available for Hilary and Trinity terms (Spring semester): please contact the Director to enquire about availability.
Visiting students have access to all college facilities and are members of the JCR (Junior Common Room - the undergraduate student body). As Registered Visiting Students of the University, they also have access to a wide range of University facilities, including the Bodleian Library, Faculty (subject) libraries, the Oxford University Computing Services, and the great wealth of lectures organized by the University throughout the academic year. Visit our Resources and Library pages to find out more.
We hope, in essence, to give visiting students the chance to experience the unique opportunities provided by study at Oxford while earning credit for their home institutions.
