The University of Oxford
The University of Oxford is a university in Oxford, England. It is the second oldest surviving university in the world. There is no clear date of foundation but teaching existed at Oxford as early as 1096 and developed from 1167 when King Henry II banned English students from studying at the University of Paris.

There are thirty-eight colleges of the University of Oxford, each controlling its membership and with its own internal structure and activities.

The academic year is divided into three terms: Michaelmas Term lasts from October to December; Hilary Term from January to March; and Trinity Term from April to June. (x) (x)

At the University of Oxford , carnations are traditionally worn to all examinations; white for the first exam, pink for exams in between and a red for the last exam. Originally this was a white carnation that was kept in a red inkpot between exams, so by the last exam it was fully red. (x)
