Roam the hallowed halls of Oxford University, gaze upon great works of art and world-famous landmarks, visit castles and palaces, and see the seat of the Roman Empire with your own eyes. During Term One of Global High School, you’ll experience the best culture and history Europe has to offer.
Begin this term in one of the United Kingdom’s most impressive seats of learning: Oxford. Enjoy a true university experience in Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, and take up residence at St Hilda’s College, the perfect home base for exploring this historic university. Visit the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology, punt down the River Cherwell, and take day trips to London, Bath and Stonehenge.
Head south to the Mediterranean shore and wander through the beautiful quarters of Barcelona, immersing yourself in Catalan language, culture, and cuisine. Sun yourself at the glamorous Sitges Beach; be awestruck by examples of Antoni Gaudí’s architecture, including the Sagrada Família and Park Güell; and study the riches of the Picasso Museum.
Take wing over the north of the Tyrrhenian Sea and descend in ancient Italy! Enjoy the grandeur of Rome and visits to the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum and Roman Forum, and a day trip to Florence – the birthplace of the Renaissance and home to our Italian campus. Stop in and say hello to our staff and students before departing eastward across the Adriatic to Greece, the cradle of Western civilization.
Acclimate yourself to Greek culture on Crete, the country’s largest island, where you can rejuvenate on dazzling beaches, and swim in clear blue waters. Head to the mainland and the iconic Athens, where you can feast your eyes upon the Agora and the Temple of Zeus, before closing the chapter on this leg of your global adventure.
