University of Oxford – About
The University of Oxford’s establishment date is not really known. It is known that learning at Oxford occurred as early as the year 1096, but it is uncertain when a university came into existence. It grew rapidly from the year 1167 when English students got back from the University of Paris. Gerald of Wales, a historian lectured to such scholars in 1188, and the first recognized international scholar, Emo of Friesland, arrived in 1190. After disagreements between scholars and Oxford townsfolk in the year 1209, some academics fled from the violence to Cambridge, later forming the University of Cambridge.
