‘Courses’ refers to Oxford’s undergraduate degree programmes. Students apply for these courses through UCAS. Some of these courses are in single subjects (eg History or Geography), while others are joint courses combining two or more subjects (eg Mathematics and Computer Science). Most courses are three or four years long and lead to a BA Honours degree or a Master’s degree (eg MEarthSci or MMath). For more information, please see ox.ac.uk/courses.
For further information on all Oxford's admissions statistics please read the Annual Admissions Statistical Report.
