New College

New College is one of the  most architecturally striking colleges, with beautiful gardens and a variety of excellent facilities. We are very proud of our wonderful, diverse student body and encourage a friendly, open atmosphere throughout the college in which everyone can flourish both socially and academically.

Students at New College

While learning and scholarship are our primary focus, the College has an exceptionally rich cultural, sporting and musical life, headlined by the world-famous New College Choir and our award-winning music practice building just two minutes from the main College site – the Clore Music Studios.

New College also has fantastic sports facilities, with our sports ground just a few minutes’ walk away. Students can join one of our many teams, or just head down to the sports ground to play more casually.

Our students run a wide range of societies, from music and drama to LGBTQ+ and BAME activities – all passions and backgrounds are celebrated in the New College family!

Aran

Getting in touch with the college linked to your region has no influence on your chances of being accepted to this or any other particular college. You are also very welcome to get in touch with any other college for advice about applying or studying here.
