Corpus Christi College
This year Corpus celebrates the 500th anniversary of its foundation in 1517. It is amongst the University of Oxford's smaller and older colleges, combining beautiful, sixteenth-century architecture with a modern, cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Historically, Corpus Christi College played a crucial role on the religious and political map of England in the 1500s, boasting close ties with Queen Catherine of Aragon and Queen Mary. Now, despite its small size, lying between the bustling heart of Oxford and the quieter meadows, Corpus Christi College is an international giant in the study of Classics.
