    At Oxford and Cambridge ('Oxbridge'), every term ('semester' in the U.S?) is 8 weeks long. There are three 8-week terms per academic year. This is very different to other UK unis because most universities in Britain have three terms that are each 12 weeks long. Therefore if you go to either Oxford or Cambridge you have basically three months less term-time per year than other UK university students, and more work to do in that time! That's why being an Oxbridge student is high-intensity! :)
