The University of Oxford is first mentioned in 12th-century records.   Oxford’s earliest colleges were University College, 1249, Balliol, 1263 and Merton, 1264.   These colleges came about when the Europeans started translating the writings of Greek philosophers.    These colleges at Oxford were supported by the Church for reconciling Greek philosophy and Christian theology.

Just a little note of advise, I studied abroad and I am glad I did the experience you will have is like none other.  You will find people are genuine and you will also find people who come from the same area as you do, it is an experience of a lifetime.  So go ahead, study abroad if not for 4 years make it 1 or 2 you won’t be sorry.  You might just decide to live there and not go back to where you came from.
