Oxford retains a special place in the academic landscape of the UK and in the hearts of those who live, study and teach here.
There are many reasons why Oxford generates such admiration, pride and loyalty. No individual reason is unique, but when they are all viewed together it becomes clear that Oxford is a university like no other. These are the characteristics that have differentiated Oxford from all other universities for hundreds of years, and will continue to form the essence of the Oxford experience for years to come.
Oxford is strongly committed to this principle: if you are a UK student and have the talent and ability to study with us, you should never be put off from applying for financial reasons. In 2015–16, Oxford is committed to providing generous financial support to students from lower-income households, to ensure they can make the most of what Oxford has to offer.
