IONA

Summer Program in Oxford, England - OPUS (Oxford Program for Undergraduate Studies)

Summer Session 2: Mid-May End of June

Iona in Oxford is a program offering six weeks of study in Oxford, England. Students from Iona and other institutions are required to take six tutorials in one subject. At Iona this is the equivalent of one three-credit course. Any liberal arts discipline may be requested, subject to availability of tutors.

Participants select one course from the following mainstream Oxford disciplines:

  • English
  • History
  • Politics
  • International Relations
  • Psychology
  • Philosophy
  • Economics
  • European Union

Courses can be taken for core, elective, or major credit.

A select number of well-qualified students who have completed their second or third year at Iona will be eligible to participate during the late Trinity Term (Ionas summer 1 session). The minimum cumulative GPA requirement is 3.2 and 3.5 in the student's major. Students participate on the same basis as other Associate Students.

Participants have an on-site Orientation on arrival, become associate members of the Junior Common Room of an Oxford College, and are entitled to use their College Library, dine in College and participate in all social and athletic activities. They are also entitled to join the Bodleian Library.

The program costs include single room housing, tuition, and a program of educational trips and events.
