Oxford researchers are at the forefront of research into many of the global challenges facing us today, including major initiatives on subjects as diverse as ageing, tropical diseases, climate change, and global governance. To deliver on its mission of educational and research excellence and societal impact, Oxford has also built connections with collaborators around the world as strong as those enjoyed by any university.
Most of this collaboration happens through the hundreds (or perhaps thousands) of research links developed by our academics with partners abroad, right across the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and medicine. Oxford has also entered into a small number of important institutional relationships, including bilateral links with other universities, and membership of university associations.
The International Strategy office is responsible for developing a coherent strategy to promote Oxford’s international relations, global profile and international competitiveness. The work of the office is broad and includes such issues as Oxford's approach to:
- Promoting deeper engagement with key countries/regions
- International collaborations (research and education)
- International educational experiences for all students
- Integration of international academic staff and students
- International student recruitment and funding
Oxford University has connections with virtually every country in the world. Please check Oxford's Global Links for details of our engagement with different parts of the world.
