Why Choose Middlebury-CMRS?

The Middlebury-CMRS semester programme offers a number of distinct advantages:

  • Carefully structured academic coursework. For 8 weeks of the semester, students take two traditional Oxford one-to-one tutorials, along with a readings seminar.  For the remaining 4 weeks, students write a supervised research paper on a subject chosen by them in consultation with academic staff.
  • Course offerings designed to serve the needs of students at US colleges and universities.  We can tailor tutorial classes to meet US major requirements.  For guidance, contact the Senior Tutor.
  • A broad range of courses within all of the Humanities, including modern subjects. You'll find everything from ancient history to 20th-century poetry on our course list.
  • Courses in Languages and Social Sciences can be arranged through consultation with the Senior Tutor.
  • On-site academic advising by the indefatigable team of Principal, Senior Tutor and Assistant Senior Tutor.
