Welcoming our first cohort of Oxford Next Horizons Programme Participants

Oxford Next Horizons is the first programme of its kind in Europe. It gives seasoned career professionals the opportunity to learn, explore, and reinvent while being part of the unique communities of the Rhodes Trust and Harris Manchester College. For some, it’s an opportunity to study a subject or complete the project they’ve always dreamed about. For others, it’s the opportunity to figure out what issues or challenges they want to tackle next.

The six months programme over two terms is an experience in Oxford with peers and our wider community. It draws on deep intellectual resources across the University and enables participants to connect with two unique communities within it – Harris Manchester College, Oxford’s only college devoted to non-traditional age students, and Rhodes House, home of the world’s oldest international graduate scholarship, the Rhodes Scholarship.

Oxford Next Horizons also draws on the unique traditions of Oxford’s educational system, offering direct access to world-class expertise, learning through peer to peer debate and discussion, and deeper exploration through individual endeavour, including the opportunity to participate in Oxford-style tutorials.
