Warning of 'Reputational Risk’ Posed by Study Abroad at Oxford

Warning of 'Reputational Risk’ Posed by Study Abroad at Oxford
August 28, 2013

An internal report at the University of Oxford raises concerns about the “severe reputational risk” posed by the admission of wealthy foreigners – including American study abroad students – as visiting students for “purely commercial reasons," The Telegraph reported. The report states that the visiting students, who are typically admitted to an Oxford college for up to a year through third-party entities and pay a tuition rate higher than the £9,000 charged to British students, do not have to meet the same admissions standards as regular Oxford undergraduates: “Although there is some assessment of their GPA [Grade Point Average] scores before they are admitted by each college, the transaction seems to be one of a purely commercial kind."
