The program fee for the 2023 Oxford Summer Seminar is $8,585 - $9,300, depending on final enrollment. It covers the following items:


The program fee includes tuition for two four-credit, six-week courses and the two-credit, pass/fail Seminar Colloquium.


The program fee covers 6 weeks of accommodations within Keble College, Oxford University, in either single rooms or traditional shared suites.

Please note: Some students with special needs can be accommodated, but Keble College itself does not conform to American laws on accessibility. Please contact the director with further questions about accommodations.


The meal plan includes 12 meals per week: Breakfast all seven days, dinners from Sunday through Thursdays. It does not include lunches, but all students will have dorm fridges, and a full grocery store is right around the corner from Keble.

High Table
Within the meal plan are six formal dinners, the so-called High Table nights (for the presence of the High Table, at which all students will sit once during the summer). It also includes two formal receptions before the opening and closing dinners.


The program fee also covers the costs of the Tuesday evening lectures at 6 pm, which feature literary critics, historians, and artists, and are followed each night by a formal High Table dinner at 7. These lectures form part of the content for the British Studies Colloquium.

Field Trips

The program fee includes field trips for all students. Past field trips have included the Tower of London, Stonehenge, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace, and Bath. The field trips for the 2023 Seminar have not been finalized.

Other Expenses

Travel expenses to and from Oxford are not included in the program fee. Evening meals on Friday and Saturday are not included in the Program Fee. No lunches are included in the program fee. Students from Summer 2022 were asked how much they spent in pocket money during the Seminar. The average response was about $250 per week.
