Keble College is one of the largest of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford.

SPIA at Oxford

The UGA at Oxford Study Abroad Program has been in existence for over twenty years. One of the most successful programs on campus, the program is a big reason that the University of Georgia has risen to rank in the top five in the nation for University student participation in study abroad programs.

SPIA at Oxford is an intensive program in political science and international affairs that concentrates on Anglo-American politics. Students will study with Oxford tutors in small tutorials, the system of individualized instruction that is traditional at Oxford. A SPIA professor will also offer seminars. Participants will live in the UGA at Oxford Centre, a three-story Victorian mansion.

Students will be housed at the University of Georgia 's Center in North Oxford. The large, elegantly-furbished rooms hold two to four students and most have private bathrooms. Georgia students will also have associate membership in Keble College, which allows them to dine with Oxford students, have access to the College libraries, common rooms and pubs, and to participate in the College's social, cultural, and sporting societies and events.

Students will earn between twelve and fifteen semester hours in a wide variety of disciplines. Classes will be taught by both UGA and Oxford faculty, some using an intensive seminar format. During the 8-week Oxford term, classes will be taught by Oxford faculty using the tutorial format, an intensive system of individualized or small-group instruction traditional at Oxford.
