COA Oxenfurt Univ

The University or Academy of Oxenfurt is a bastion of education. Its main academic rival is the Imperial Academy in Nilfgaard.

Among its more famous alumni are Shani and Dandelion. The former went on to become the dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Herbology, while the latter studied the seven liberal arts, graduating summa cum laude honors. He went on to lecture at the institution many years after his departure as a student. The witcher Geralt also attended some lectures at the university, such as astronomy.[1]

One of it achievements was the renovated elven aqueduct, which served as an experimental sewage treatment plant, of dubious reputation.

Building of Oxenfurt Academy

Even though its one of most dominating sights of city, University does not happens to be a place of secondary or main quest. This however changes with Hearts of Stone Expansion. Also a number of professors from different faculties are making their appearance.

During the course of the Third Northern War the University was closed, and most of its faculty and students conscripted into the ranks of the Redanian Army. Those students and professors involved with the Faculty of Medicine and Herbology were instead 'invited' by King Radovid V to join the medics accompanying the army. Building is protected by witch hunters and soldiers.

The University of Cambridge CoA

It would appear that the inspiration for the Academy of Oxenfurt may be derived from the United Kingdom's oldest (medieval) universities: Oxford (c. 1096) and Cambridge (c. 1209), with both universities are often referred together and abbreviated as "Oxbridge". Additionally, the coat of arms bear striking similarities to those of the University of Cambridge.
