Visit the University of Oxford


– [Kraina] Oxford has long been known as the city of dreaming spires, and there’s plenty here to
intrigue the imagination. – Karina! – Hello Patrick. My friend, Patrick, loves
sharing his insights into this historic British town. The University of Oxford is
the oldest English-speaking university in the world. Within these hallowed halls, every building and every
monument has a story. – He is the third Earl of Pembroke. He sponsored the publication
the very first collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays. – [Karina] The University
of Oxford is actually a collection of 38 individual colleges, with the Bodleian Library at its heart. And while the Bodleian
is a working library for students and academics, it can be visited on a guided tour. The Ashmolean Museum is
another of my favorites. It began as a gallery of
portraits and curiosities, with a catalog being
written by the janitor. It soon became the model
of the modern museum. – It was the first purposely built museum anywhere in the world, and now it is the oldest
museum in the world. – And it’s free I hear. – It’s free now. It wasn’t when the
Ashmolean opened in 1683. – [Karina] And what did it cost then? – Hard to say because
there was no entry charge. There was an exit charge instead. – So the longer you stayed inside, the more you paid on exit. – That’s right. – Very clever. The Eagle and Child Pub,
established in 1650, provides a look in to the creative space of some of the world’s greatest authors. – It was in this very room that C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, and a group of their friends
who were known as the inklings, used to meet to talk about
the books they were writing. – [Karina] For a breath of fresh air, explore the botanic garden. Founded almost 400 years ago, it’s home to more than
5,000 plant species. Or get out and experience
the city’s quaint waterways. I highly recommend an afternoon
of quietly punting along. Oxford is a city of many delights. We can’t wait to share them with you.

  1. I'm going to work hard for the grades I need to do summer school here! Hope I'll be able to see this beautiful university where professor Stephen hawking went to and did his work. 😀

  2. dear oxford. you might want to ask youtube for a copy of all of my posts. the writing style initially is rough but effectively points out what is required. yes, i would like a degree in "the ability to count to five" that is recognized. why was arminius's story undiscovered for so long? caesar agustus, was a really good guy. its mildly reported because he swept it under the rug for arminius. he was a great step father that had accepted him as his child fully.

  3. where some things get more interesting, my friend Greedy. he has practiced on his own, this is apparent. he has gotten better at saying the word "hello" a lot of what i have learned is based on a culture that has a very primitive language (crows.) they have families, alliances, minor laws, territories, disputes ETC. there are dragons and wyverns in their medieval world. (falcons and eagles.) they ask for help and aid each other, dependent on status. ive been approached for help before, but didnt know the language well enough at that time. they use tactics and allies, to produce effect. etc. etc. etc.

  4. Oxford is my dream school for a long time now… but I'm just sad it seems impossible for me to go there since I'm living in the Philippines and I cant afford to study there even though I have scholarship.
