Bucksmore Summer Programmes


St Hilda’s College, Oxford University


St Hilda’s College is one of the riverside colleges of Oxford University and was founded in 1893. The College only accepted female undergraduate students until 2008. It is situated next to Magdalen bridge, famous for punting, and is a short walk away from the centre of Oxford.

Students sleep in the collge bedrooms and study in the college classrooms. Bucksmore use the nearby sports hall of Magdalen College School for sports activities. The college has a wonderful, historic dining room which is used for all meals on site.
