Our mission is to educate and open doors for well qualified students from a limited number of participating US colleges and universities through a relatively short, intensive period of study under the guidance of Oxford tutors to the same standard and in the same manner as matriculated Oxford undergraduates, while providing a high level of support and pastoral care.
OPUS students are intellectually gifted individuals who are searching for a new academic challenge. They are driven and passionate about their studies while also passionate about making the most out of their study abroad experience. OPUS students are willing to try new things such as rowing or debating.
All OPUS students leave the program as OPUS Student Ambassadors.
1 out of every 10 OPUS students return to Oxford for graduate studies after completing their undergraduate degree.
