I am curious about something. I noticed Oxford has three 8 week terms. When I look up accommodation costs, it appears the cost is for the 3 terms. Do students stay at Oxford during the time between terms or do they go home?
Another question in regards to term breaks: am I correct in assuming during the non-term times you are not twiddling your thumbs but studying, whether at home or still at your college?
What are the downsides?
