Rest of the World

The University of Oxford is home to almost 2,000 full-degree undergraduate students from outside the UK. Oxford is one of the most international universities in the world. Today, one third of its students, including 17% of undergraduates, are international citizens, and come from 138 countries.

Our students receive an intensive education, including our distinctive tutorials, and are taught by academic leaders in their field. Colleges provide multidisciplinary communities within which students are supported and intellectually challenged, and have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and many different countries.

The Student Recruitment Team seek to support students, their parents, teachers and counsellors wishing to find out more about studying at our institution and the application process, no matter where they are in the world.
