There are many universities, but 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 even more reasons why Oxford generates such admiration, pride and loyalty. Taken individually, these reasons may not be unique, but when viewed together they form the characteristics that have differentiated the University from all others 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. For example: in 2012–13, an English student starting at Oxford could receive up to £7,550 in grants and bursaries that they never have to pay back, as well as being entitled to government loans to cover their fees plus up to £3,575.
