In the PLU IHON-Oxford Program, students have the opportunity to pursue one-on-one learning in their field of study through the world-renowned Oxford tutorial system, while also exploring place-based learning in the UK with an IHON faculty member.

While at Oxford, program participants enjoy associated student status at one of three Oxford colleges, have access to the world-renowned Bodleian Library, and can take part in the many public lectures and other events at Oxford many different colleges and institutions. Many students also join teams, choirs and orchestras, volunteer organizations, and many other groups while living in Oxford.


PLU's IHON-Oxford program has not only granted me the opportunity to study at one of the most elite universities in the world for a semester, but it has also given me the opportunity to see many other parts of Europe in my free time, meet people from all over the world, and most importantly, it has enlightened me as a student and as an individual.

I am a STEM major: can I participate in IHON-Oxford?


We can offer tutorials in Biochemistry, Physics, Botany — just about any topic which lends itself to one-on-one instruction.

I am studying Nursing, and can't do a semester study-away program. Can I do IHON-Oxford?


You could participate in our J-Term IHON-Oxford Program. Like the fall and spring IHON-Oxford Programs, this J-Term Program features one-on-one tutorials and access to the Bodleian Library.

I am studying Education, and my schedule is preset for me. Can I participate in IHON-Oxford?


While it is true that the Education program has a tight schedule, we have had several successful Education majors attend IHON-Oxford in their Sophomore years.  It takes a little planning, but you can absolutely do it.  Contact Program Director Dr. Arthur Strum or IHON Director Seth Dowland for help scheduling.
