Exclusive: Oxford University may break with 700 years of tradition and open a foreign campus - after France offers Brexit sweetener
Oxford University might break with 700 years of tradition by establishing its first foreign campus in response to Brexit, The Telegraph can disclose.
French officials met senior staff at Oxford last week and revealed new proposals that they hope would guarantee future European Union funding for a "satellite" base in Paris.
Other universities, including Warwick, were approached with the idea to build a new campus in Paris in 2018.
It comes after France launched a charm offensive earlier this month to lure Britain's bankers across the Channel after Britain voted to leave the EU.
