In addition to its location in the incredible city of Oxford, the Middlebury-CMRS semester program offers a number of distinct advantages:

Happy students in the Keble College Dining Hall
  • Carefully structured academic coursework. For 10 weeks of the semester, students take two traditional Oxford one-to-one tutorials, along with a readings seminar. For the remaining 4 weeks, students write a supervised research paper on a subject chosen by them in consultation with academic staff.
  • Course offerings designed to serve the needs of students at US colleges and universities. We can tailor tutorial classes to meet US major requirements.
