Visiting Students from USA

Pembroke operates a vibrant, full-year Visiting Student programme with select US universities. All Visiting Students studying at Pembroke for their Junior Year Abroad (JYA) enjoy the full "Oxford" experience.

This includes full integration into the College and University life:

  • Visiting Students are accommodated on the main Pembroke site, not in remote or separate buildings;
  • participate in the full range of sporting and social life of the College;
  • and receive the same academic experience, including tutorials, that has made the Oxford undergraduate education perhaps the most respected and renowned in the world.

We are also proud that our Visiting Student programme, which means that we admit approximately 30 JYA students each year, extends our long-standing links with the US.

James Smithson, the founder of the Smithsonian Institution, was an undergraduate at Pembroke, while other distinguished US Pembrokians include two former Chairs of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (Senator Richard Lugar and the late J. William Fulbright), the Hon. Philip Lader (US Ambassador to the UK 1997-2001), Walter Isaacson (former CEO of CNN and Editor of Time magazine, and Steve Jobs' Biographer), Patrick Pichette (former CFO of Google), and Michelle Peluso (CEO of Gilt and member of the board of Nike).
