Choosing your course

The most important decision you will make when applying to Oxford is choosing which course to study. You’ll spend at least three years immersed in your course, and those years are likely to be much more enjoyable if you genuinely love what you’re learning about.

Oxford has a wide range of courses for you to pick from so make sure you explore your options thoroughly. You might already have a clear idea of which course you’d like to apply for but do take the time to think carefully and read about courses you might not have considered before.

Explore the courses Oxford has to offer below. Look at the detail and make sure it sounds right for you. A course with the same title may vary in its content and structure at different universities so make sure that you understand these differences.  

We are now also offering a different route to access some courses at Oxford. So if you’re interested in studying here but your personal or educational circumstances have meant you are unlikely to achieve the grades typically required for Oxford undergraduate courses, then choosing to apply for one of our courses with an Astrophoria Foundation Year might be the path for you. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to find out more about our foundation year courses. 

Note: when you click on a course below, you will be taken away from the digital prospectus to the course webpage of our main undergraduate admissions website. 

The key to choosing your degree is passion. If you truly love a subject and are eager to learn about it, then that's the course for you. Your degree should excite, motivate and inspire you.
