Overview

Together with cooperating programs of U.S. colleges, WISC is by far the largest overseas study program in Oxford, with over 400 students last year. Since 1985 we have brought to Oxford students from 46 states who had previously studied in over 550 colleges and universities. These students have come from such leading colleges as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Brown, Penn, Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, Tufts, Duke, Stanford, the University of Chicago, the University of California, the University of Virginia, etc.Another example of the diversity of WISC students: Butler University operates one of the biggest study abroad programs and has a large National Advisory Council of 111 colleges and universities from across the U.S. Students who have come through WISC previously studied at 80 colleges (72%) of that group of leading colleges.Since June 1999, WISC has been offering a prize (now $200,000) to the first reader who can name an equal overseas program anywhere. After over ten years we have not yet received a single entry (please see below).
