Oxford Spring School is organised by the University of Oxford's Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR), an internationally renowned centre of excellence for teaching and research. The study of these disciplines at Oxford has a long and distinguished history and the department is now one of the largest and most accomplished in the field in the UK. The venue for Oxford Spring School 2019 will be Lady Margaret Hall, founded in 1878, and located on the banks of the Cherwell River at the end of Norham Gardens in North Oxford, across University Park from DPIR.
Oxford itself is a beautiful city of stunning architecture, history and culture. You will find ancient and modern colleges, fascinating museums and galleries, and plenty of parks, gardens and green spaces in which to relax.
A major tourist destination, Oxford also has a diverse range of quality cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants, and the city holds regular cultural events. The city centre is small enough to cover on foot, and just a few minutes’ walk away you will find the main rail and coach stations.
