A sincere book about studentship

Book

Book

The main idea of the fiction book “In Oxford” is to show readers what the study year is like for students at the legendary Oxford University.

The author of the book Olena Boytsun has been conducting research at the University of Oxford within the Chevening scholarship program during 2006-2007. The book was published in 2009 in Ukraine by the Teza Publishing House. Although all names, characters and events in the book are fictional, described traditions, as well as educational and social processes are absolutely real.

The emotional experiences of the main character - young Ukrainian woman Tamara - are shown on the background of the international environment of the university, where young people from all over the world are studying. Friendship ties and a busy schedule support Tamara in better understanding herself as well as the world around her. The most important specific nature of studying at the University of Oxford is the possibility for each student to make progress in the inner development as well as the respect of the system towards aspiration for self-realisation.

“In Oxford”

Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world (founded in the 11th century!). The legendary peak of education ... However, with a certain amount of dedication and faith, it is possible to conquer this peak, as it happened with the cheerful Ukrainian girl Tamara Bosikom.

We will spend the whole academic year in the University of Oxford with Tamara, empathizing with sometimes funny and sometimes sad events in her life. We will figure out how everything works, what are the rules, what is really of interest for students. We will learn that nowadays students from all over the world study at the university and will see how they can become dynamic and useful members of the mixed and diverse society.

College rankings, student societies and parties, dates and shopping, bus schedules and library seating order - all this information is real. You should definitely use it, if you are thinking of getting an education in the UK. Maybe, this book is what you need for making the decision to study abroad?

Reviews

Since the book "In Oxford" was published in 2009, the author Olena Boytsun was repeatedly invited to TV and radio broadcasts, held presentations in many cities around Ukraine, including Kyiv, Dnipro, Lviv, Odessa, and participated in national book exhibitions. The topic of studying abroad within scholarship programs became interesting for both students and their parents.

- Ukrainians are the best in the world! And finally someone showed it :)
Very funny and cheerful book. I liked the descriptions of Oxford and students, and I worried about Tamara.
Came from the pub late at night and read until the early morning. It's all true.
It is the book that I will buy for my daughter along with the English language study book.
