Oxford’s intensive teaching style is intellectually challenging, and leads to a world-class education.
Great financial support
Oxford offers the most generous support of any university in the UK to those from the lowest-income backgrounds.
Top career outcomes
When our undergraduates go on to full-time work, they have a median income 20% higher than the UK average within 6 months of graduating.
Hundreds of course options
Oxford offers traditional courses and more unusual ones, some of which are unique to us.
Oxford is made up of small academic communities called colleges, where you will be taught in small groups or even one-to-one.
Oxford’s libraries and museums are second to none in their historical buildings and collections. Whether your interest is fossils or first editions, you can find something to interest you here.
At the cutting edge
Yes, we are an innovative research institution, but that’s not all that’s modern about Oxford. We have many brand-new buildings and a wifi network covering most of the city centre.
A diverse student body
Whoever you are and wherever you’re from, Oxford wants to welcome you. We have students from 138 different countries and aged 17–87.
The Oxford experience
Oxford students like to play as hard as they work. The city has vibrant nightlife and a thriving live music scene, while hundreds of student societies cover every conceivable interest.
