Oxford is what you make it

Welcome

As well as a world-class education, Oxford University offers an extraordinary range of opportunities that mean your student life here can be whatever you want it to be. There is no typical student here, and no single Oxford experience.

By exploring this prospectus website, you can discover why Oxford is such a great place to be. We hope this will help you decide if Oxford might be the right next step for you. 

Just click on one of the 'Oxford Is' boxes below and begin to discover Oxford.

I think the biggest myth is that every Oxford student fits a particular stereotype … the Oxford experience is truly what you make of it, and it is important to know that you can do whatever you want, and still be accepted for it.

Go for it! If you’re from an ethnic, racial, religious minority or if you come from a low income household – don’t be intimidated.
