University of Oxford

The University of Oxford is a collegiate research university located in Oxford, England. While having no known date of foundation, there is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world.

The university is made up of a variety of institutions, including 38 constituent colleges and a full range of academic departments which are organised into four divisions. All the colleges are self-governing institutions as part of the university, each controlling its own membership and with its own internal structure and activities. Being a city university, it does not have a main campus; instead, all the buildings and facilities are scattered throughout the metropolitan centre.

 

UNPO is collaborating with the University of Oxford in a training programme called "Training Diplomats from Unrepresented Nations: Capacity Building for Effective UN Lobbying". You can also download the official summary of the programme. The programme is described in detail on its website.
