This chapter examines the British Empire Dominions' perception about the role of the University of Oxford. It analyses the impact of the university on the people of India, Australia, Canada, South Africa, and Rhodesia. It suggests that of the ‘kindred elect’, it was perhaps the Australians who made the most impact on Oxford and because those Australians who had brilliant Oxford academic careers tended to remain there.

Keywords:   University of Oxford, British Empire, Dominions, India, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Rhodesia
