Conference Location

University Information

The Campus is located near the famous Oxford University, which is a bonanza for anyone who wants to acquire an international cultural orientation and take courses that are taught entirely in English.

The closeness to London and the City, London’s unparalleled financial district, further add to the reasons to come to the Campus, where you will be welcomed at the premises of the City of Oxford College (Activate Learning), near to the Oxford’s historic centre.

In order to give the best learning conditions to an ever-increasing number of students (180 registered for 2018-2019), the Oxford Campus is extending its premises by a further 200 m2. This extension is welcome as it has allowed setting up two more lecture rooms and a new catering area, the installation of a co-working area for students and an area for Student Societies.

Local Information
