Summer 2016 Academic and Culture Communication Program at Oxford University


Zhiyuan College and Hertford College in Oxford University has been cooperated for three years to promote the international summer program. This summer, there were 22 selected Mathematics and Physics students travelled across the country to join the two weeks program in Oxford.

Compared to the previous two years program, students had more chances to indulge in cutting-edge knowledge this year. The program invited experienced professors to teach specialized courses. There was no more “quiet” classroom atmosphere but presented a new look with discussion and debate.

Two native students from Hertford College worked as Residential Assistants to help. They arranged various activities after class, including off-road walk, punting, and university library visits, to uncover the “hidden map” in Oxford. Students also participated a study visit to Bristish Museum and National Gallery in London, the day before, they were lucky to have an arts teacher to introduce the world’s painting masterpieces. It was valuable for science students to acquire humanism.
