Ox­ford Univer­sity in Talks to Open French Cam­pus

The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Ox­ford Univer­sity is con­sid­er­ing open­ing its first for­eign cam­pus in di­rect re­sponse to the UK leav­ing the Euro­pean Union. The for­mer direc­tor of the French min­istry for ed­u­ca­tion, Jean-Michel Blan­quer, con­firmed French au­thor­i­ties and in­sti­tu­tions were work­ing to bring the UK’s most revered uni­ver­si­ties to France and said of­fi­cials had also spo­ken to rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Univer­sity of War­wick. Ac­cord­ing to The Daily Tele­graph, Ox­ford Univer­sity has been in­formed that such a cam­pus would au­to­mat­i­cally ob­tain French le­gal sta­tus and would there­fore con­tinue to re­ceive EU fund­ing af­ter Brexit. If the plans be­tween Ox­ford and what The Daily Tele­graph de­scribes as “lead­ing in­sti­tu­tions” in France come to fruition, then con­struc­tion of a new Ox­ford Univer­sity cam­pus in the French cap­i­tal could be­gin as early as 2018.
