Literature, Adventure and Fun - Great Books at Oxford!
Literary Oxford: An Academic Adventure Abroad
Imagine being able to explore Shakespeare’s Hamlet both on and off the page. As we dive into the influential work of this playwright, students will have the unique experience of visiting Shakespeare’s birthplace Stratford-upon-Avon, and watching as his work is brought to life by the famous Royal Shakespeare Company. This is what makes Great Books @Oxford the academic adventure of a lifetime.
