Study in Oxford
The 2019 Reagan-Thatcher Series is now open for applications!
The Reagan-Thatcher Lecture Series for the Summer of 2019 will start on July 29 and finish on August 19 (students will be able to stay in Oxford housing until August 27 depending on when their home term starts). The lecture series is a unique course focused on examining the conservative movement in both the United States and Great Britain. Tracing the movement’s origins to the “liberalism” of Adam Smith, Edmund Burke, John Locke and the American Founders, the course looks to the foundations of classical thought to understand conservatism in both the US and UK. The course will also explore the modern development and growth of Anglo-American conservatism from the 1950’s onward, culminating in the golden age of conservatism under Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. We will discuss the current state of conservatism in each country and look towards its future under Theresa May in the UK and the post-2016 election in the United States. There are a limited number of spots available so it is essential that students start the application process ASAP. The total fee for programme is $3850 for 3-5 units. Students accepted will receive $450-$1450 from the Scholarship Fund. The programme is open to all majors and grade levels. Fees include housing, tours in Oxford, London and Windsor Castle, a formal reception and several informal receptions. All rooms are in the center of Oxford and have full kitchens, the internet, and TV. All fees for all programmes DO NOT include airfare and meals.
