The top-ranked U.S. university is offering an online course on how to be more self-sufficient while abroad, a move aimed at boosting the economic and social value of their programs.
The U.K.-based Oxford University has offered a similar online course for two years, and in the past year the University of Texas at Austin has launched a similar program called U.R.A.E.E., or the Sustainable Education Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurships program.
Oxford’s course, which is called “The Next Big Thing,” is aimed at helping students prepare for their next college application and career transition, according to the university.
It was developed by the Oxford University Institute of Advanced Studies and will be available for free in the spring semester.
The course will take place at Oxford’s new campus, Oxford City, which will be the first of a series of centers around the university in the U.P.A., the new U.N. mission and other U.U.s, according the university’s website.
Oxbridge students can take the course online as well as at home or at the university library.
The university also has a similar project called “Un-Study Abroad,” which offers more than 1,000 online courses to students from 25 countries, including Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, South Africa, Turkey and the U of T.
The study abroad program will be open to both English and non-English speakers, the university said.
Oxfield students are not the only ones offering online courses on sustainable education.
The University of Southern California recently announced plans to offer a similar course to students who plan to study abroad.
