Oceania | University of Oxford


The links between Oxford University and Oceania stretch back to the first days of higher education in the former colonies. The University of Sydney, created in 1850, was based on the Oxford collegiate model, and its first professors came from Oxford and Cambridge. The University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand was founded in 1873 by virtue of its links with Oxford’s Christ Church, one of the University’s 38 colleges.
