Dickinson is pleased to announce that four members of the class of 2026 have been accepted into the prestigious Visiting Student Programme at Oxford University’s Mansfield College.

The highly selective program offers students the opportunity to study alongside a world-class faculty and a diverse cohort of international students. About 40 students per year enter as full members of the college with an official status within the University of Oxford.

This year’s group brings Dickinson’s 12-year total to 43 students in the program, which accepts applicants from selective colleges and universities in the U.S. and the EU. To qualify for the program, students must have a minimum 3.70 GPA and strong recommendations from college faculty. This year, the program welcomes:

  • Farrell Gregory, an international studies and Chinese major from Reisterstown, Md.
  • Jack Hentschel, an English major from Needham, Mass.
  • Alexandra Lauff, an English and medieval & early modern studies major from Havertown, Pa.
  • Claire Wayne, a political science major from Nashville, Tenn.

This cohort also marks another year in which every one of Dickinson’s applicants were admitted.
