Why come to Oxford?

Why should they think about Oxford? Well, if you are going to university, why not go to one of the best? There are some good reasons we have been voted the best university in the world for the past four years. 

Changing the world
At Oxford you can learn from the people at the centre of ground-breaking research which is changing the future of the world.

Expert careers advice
Our careers service offers all of our students free, lifelong and expert advice on job opportunities and guidance on further studying.

A perfect place to learn
With over 100 libraries, four world-class museums and around 1,500 laboratories, our students have some of the best learning facilities in the world on their doorstep.

First class teaching
Oxford students benefit from a level of personalised teaching from experts, which most universities do not offer.

Sharing the costs
Oxford offers generous financial support to those who need it most. One in four UK students currently receives a bursary (that doesn’t need to be repaid) towards living costs, so they don’t need to worry about money.

Close communities
Oxford is made up of over 30 colleges, which means students benefit from belonging to both a large, world-class university and a small, friendly community.

Help when they need it
We all need a helping hand occasionally, and there are lots of people at Oxford to provide support when needed.

A world of opportunity
Students here do work hard, but there’s also time to do other things. There are hundreds of opportunities to have fun, socialise and develop useful skills.

A fun and student-focused city
Oxford is not only beautiful, but it’s a young city, full of students. It’s a great place to live.
