Dartmouth-Oxford Exchange at Keble College

The Dartmouth-Oxford Exchange Program sends up to four Dartmouth undergraduates per term to University of Oxford's Keble College. As a fully integrated member of the Oxford community, you take courses in the British tutorial system that can count towards your major.

About The Program

View the 2024-2025 Keble Guide here

Up to four Dartmouth undergraduates per term may attend Keble College during fall, winter, and spring terms.

You will be a fully-integrated member of the Oxford community. You will live on campus, participate in co-curricular and social activities, and take pre-approved political and economy courses.

The allowed course load at Keble College is two courses taught using the British tutorial system, meaning lots of one-on-one time with the professor and independent study time with only occasional, if any, class meetings.

Most courses taken through this program count towards your major. Please check the information guide for individual course qualifications in government and economics.

For more information, contact Rockefeller Center Curricular & Research Faculty and Staff, including:

Professor Herschel Nachlis, Associate Director and Senior Policy Fellow of the Rockefeller Center, Herschel.S.Nachlis@dartmouth.edu.

Laura Mitchell, Program Officer, Laura.M.Mitchell@Dartmouth.edu, (603) 646-2229.


**Please Note - If you are chosen as a Keble College attendee, you must fill out these three forms in order to attend:

  1. Transfer Credit Application for the Dartmouth Registrar (found on the Registrar's website) (must be signed by Government or Economics Departments, depending on the courses you are going to take.)
  2. Student ID card form
  3. Visiting Student Data Entry Form for Keble College

 Forms 2 and 3 will be given to you by the Program Officer, Laura Mitchell.

***Also Please Note - The Keble College Terms run later than Dartmouth College Terms.  This potentially can affect the starting dates of summer internships.  If you apply and are accepted for Trinity Term (Spring), you must finish the Keble College Term before starting any summer internship.
