The Oxford experience

Immerse yourself in the history of Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Here in the ‘city of dreaming spires’ you will enter an oasis of learning, where the world’s greatest leaders and thinkers have studied for over 800 years.

You will have the opportunity to explore the city and its famous colleges. A short-walking tour of the city’s most important historical and politically-relevant places will be provided. You’ll also have a special dinner mid-course in a centuries-old Oxford-college hall.

The Blavatnik School of Government experience

At the Blavatnik School, we provide a highly immersive participant experience. Lectures will be integrated with global case studies, simulations, and peer-to-peer discussions – giving executives a highly effective forum in which to discuss policy challenges and develop step change approaches.

A new chapter in Oxford’s history

The Blavatnik School is one of the newest and most vibrant departments of the University of Oxford. It was founded in 2010 and in 2016 opened its doors to its new state-of-the-art building, designed by Herzog & de Meuron. With large lecture theatres, flexible seminar rooms, private study areas, a reading room and full catering facilities, the new building provides an exceptional environment for study, research and collaboration.
