Oxford Prospects Programmes has teamed up with a number of Oxford colleges to assist with their visiting student programmes.
Many colleges run such programmes, which allow undergraduates from other universities to study at Oxford for between one and three terms. Registered visiting students enjoy exactly the same teaching and the same facilities as Oxford’s matriculated students.
Visiting students at Oxford colleges frequently come from home universities in the USA, though colleges also welcome students from other countries. OPP has made introductions between a number of Oxford colleges and a number of elite Chinese universities with a view to opening college visiting student programmes to excellent students from China. OPP deals with many aspects of administration on behalf of the host colleges: recommending appropriate Chinese universities, recruiting and shortlisting candidates, collating student documents, liaising between students and Oxford, etc.
The first Chinese students visiting Oxford under this scheme were accepted for Michaelmas Term 2016.
