The University of Oxford is a collegiate research university in Oxford, England. There is evidence of teaching as early as 1096,making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's second-oldest university in continuous operation after the University of Bologna.It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge. it is also one of the most prestigious university in the UK. cant wait to get in there for Medicine....the colleges are way friendly the food, sports, learning, everything you could think of out of home.....OXFORD UNIVERSITY offers it to you..the atmosphere is really lovely...
