    You can only attend one uni at a time. You may be able to transfer in 2nd year to another uni (altho I can't imagine you will achieve this in Oxford), and can do a semester abroad at some unis (so obviously wouldn't be Oxford)

    As above some universities have "study abroad" options for some courses. At Oxford to my knowledge the only relevant courses are all Modern Languages and Oriental Studies combinations, and I think Engineering might have something...? As far as I'm aware there is no formal programme for Experimental Psychology (EP) or Psychology, Philosophy, and Linguistics (PPL) students who don't move to one of the above courses.

    Generally speaking, in the UK normally you will complete your degree at only one institution with the exception of courses with a semester/year abroad, and a very small number of "double degree" programmes (which mainly seem to be at UCL). You will thus begin and end your studies at the one university, and that will be the degree granting insitution. The exception is for those double degree programmes mentioned, which are very few and far between in the UK for undergraduate (first degree) studies as noted. They're slightly more common elsewhere, and at the masters level - in these programmes you study at two universities, usually in equal amounts of time, and earn degrees from both unless otherwise stipulated.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
