Certificate of Completion

The University of Oxford and Hertford College are not awarding credit for this program. Students who successfully complete a Cooley foreign study program receive a certificate suitable for framing and may note on their curriculum vitae "Certificate, (applicable year e.g., 2014) Oxford Study Abroad Program, Western Michigan University Cooley Law School." It would be a misrepresentation to assert that you were a student of the University of Oxford and Hertford College.
