Students from all sorts of backgrounds find Univ’s inclusive and friendly atmosphere enables them to pursue their academic interests to the highest level. The pioneering Univ Opportunity Programme, recently launched, has increased the number of places available, in particular for able students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Our commitment to provide the best possible support to our students begins immediately on arrival with our free pre-sessional Maths Week for students of the relevant sciences. Two 24-hour libraries provide constant access to numerous workstations and resources. Alongside our reputation for academic excellence we have strong welfare and student support systems and offer a generous bursary scheme.
Many students take advantage of a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities including music, drama and sport. Our enthusiastic student ambassadors engage with prospective applicants to inform and encourage them.
Though having a claim to be Oxford’s oldest college, we are thoroughly forward thinking in aspiration and modern in outlook.
