The exchange programme is open to undergraduates and graduates who will be at Wadham in one of the two years following their time at Sarah Lawrence College.

The programme allows for three weeks all expenses paid at SLC in New York from 1 April to 21 April 2019. Undergraduates will attend classes and complete a project of their choosing and graduates will be able to further their own study. 

Haleigh Bellamy, who took part in the 2018 programme commented: "Having never visited America before, I was really excited to explore New York, especially since I had three weeks there! On the educational side I loved the classes I took at Sarah Lawrence, and was able to work on a project which I was passionate about - something I couldn't have done without the archival resources in New York. I'd definitely recommend applying, it was a great opportunity and I'm glad I took it."

An information evening will be held at 5.00pm on Tuesday 27 November 2018 in the Gillese Badun Room. 

Application forms can be found below and must be submitted by 11 January 2019.

The New York Exchange is a compliment to the Wadham College Visiting Student Programme, one of the oldest study programmes abroad in Oxford. Each year Wadham accepts up to 30 students from top US liberal arts colleges under the auspices of the Sarah Lawrence at Oxford Programme.
