University of Oxford
Teaching in Oxford developed during the eleventh century, helped from 1167 by Henry II's decision to ban English students from attending the University of Paris. The university had a master by 1201, on whom was conferred the title of Chancellor in 1214. Halls of residence were established during the thirteenth century, followed by the endowment of the first colleges, University, Balliol and Merton, between 1249 and 1264. By the fourteenth century the university was recognised as one of the foremost seats of learning in Europe. During the civil war Oxford University was royalist, and Charles I held a parliament of his own in Convocation House.
