Oxford: where future world leaders are made

Oxford is as close to the core of global politics as it comes. The city is famed for the quality of its academic output and from Bill Clinton to Indira Gandhi, many international leaders have made a home of Oxford at some point. The University’s Department of Politics and International Development is also world-renowned. Its past alumni include many British politicians like Thatcher and Blair, on top of the influential free-market economist, Adam Smith.

So there couldn’t be a more suitable city to engage with the big topics of international politics. Today’s pressing issues include trade wars, national identities, international conflict, and the ensuing refugee crisis. But whatever your specific areas of interest, this Oxford summer course in international relations and politics is designed to suit you.
