A good place to be

The University has a long experience of helping international students settle in. Centuries before most of today’s leading universities existed, we welcomed our first international student, Emo of Friesland, in 1190.

In a survey of international students at 60 UK universities, Oxford ranked highest for the expertise of its lecturers, its online library and for its social activities.
