Resume: Do you put Oxford or Emory?

OnlyYesterdayOnlyYesterday Registered User Posts: 36 Junior Member
In terms of your resume, do students tend to put Oxford or Emory for their education? Or are they interchangeable? Or is it Oxford for the first two years, then Emory?

Essentially, what is the correct way to put Emory (or Oxford) on a resume?

    If this is a CV, you put all your education--but that's really only for PhD/academic positions. For most any other job, you would usually leave Oxford out and start with your bachelor's degree. You'll need the space for other things. If you're a current Oxford student, you would list both the associate's and bachelor's degrees and your expected date of award.

    I think both should always be listed.

    When someone looks at your resume, they'll want to know where you received your education - and that includes Oxford.

    would saying you went to Emory all four years be technically wrong? because I'm not sure if some employers would be unfamiliar with Oxford's program or not

    No, a resume is a statement of your most relevant qualifications. You leave off the education and experience that aren't most relevant to the current position you're applying to (if you have enough other information to fill the page). Those who receive AA degrees or transfer from four-year institutions usually only list the four-year institution on their resumes.

    Both oxford college and emory college are the parts of Emory University. They are not two different universities.

    to clarify: you should put like Emory University 2017-19 without any explanation towards the first two years of college? or would "Emory University 2015-19" suffice?

    That's not usually how people list education on a resume. It's more like:

    Emory University | BA, English | Atlanta, GA | Expected 2019
