Studying for a degree at Oxford requires full focus and dedication. Choosing the right subject is crucial. Like a good book, a good subject is one you can’t put down.
Oxford degrees cover subjects in great breadth and their huge range of options also lets you probe deeply into the areas that most interest you. We recommend that you read about lots of courses including some you might not have considered before. The perfect course might be something new or might combine several favourite subjects.
You will be studying your course for three or four years or possibly more, so be sure to choose something you really want to explore. You could make a start by reading or listening to something new from our list of suggested resources. Or come along to an open day to meet students and tutors who can give a real insight into what it’s like to study here.
Where will you be taught?
Term-time teaching on our undergraduate courses usually takes place in central Oxford, usually in buildings belonging to your college or department though sometimes in other venues. Some courses also have field trips or other activities away from Oxford, as explained in the course descriptions.
