Oxford University may break with 700 years of tradition and open a foreign campus - after France off

  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.
  Oxford has been told that any campus opened in France could have French legal status and would continue to receive EU funding.
  As part of the plans, British universities would “relocate” degree courses and study programmes and create joint degrees and research laboratories.
  Should Oxford and other leading institutions sign-off on the proposals, construction of the new Parisian campus would begin in 2018.
  A spokesman for Oxford said no decision had yet been taken, but added: "Oxford has been an international university throughout its history and it is determined to remain open to the world whatever the future political landscape looks like.”
