US and Canada | University of Oxford

US and Canada

The University of Oxford is currently home to more than 200 full-degree undergraduates from North America. We seek to recruit the most academically gifted students from the region.

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.

Our activity in your area

The Student Recruitment Team visit North America in Spring and Fall to provide information, advice and guidance to students, parents and counsellors wishing to find out more about studying at our institution. For more information, click on the links below. Our activity in the region centres around delivering dedicated information sessions and attending college fairs.
