- About the University
Originally founded in 1458 as Magdalen Hall, Magdalen College has some of the most beautiful buildings and grounds in Oxford. Each year Magdalen admits around 118 undergraduate students who have demonstrated academic talent and commitment, irrespective of their social or ethnic background.
The atmosphere at Magdalen is relaxed, devoid of social pressures, but with unambiguous ambitions towards academic and extra-curricular success.
