Oxford has been a centre of academic excellence for centuries. Many students find the city itself an inspiration: the beauty of its architecture speaks of both its ancient heritage and its Christian roots.

Oxford was when I "officially" crossed over into adulthood. It was such a formative experience spiritually, academically, and emotionally. It challenged my views about the world, through academics and my social interactions; I still carry these lessons with me.
