Applications to Oxford or a TCU Exchange Program
Students applying to Oxford or a TCU Exchange are strongly urged to meet with the Center for International Studies very early, at least a year before they plan to go abroad. There is a nomination process, so deadlines occur much earlier than other TCU programs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
