Why Merton?

Merton is one of the oldest and most beautiful colleges in Oxford, tucked away behind the High Street, with glorious meadow views, but within easy reach of libraries, labs and the city centre. We are a vibrant, diverse, inclusive, community with an exceptional record of academic success.

Merton is…

“…an inclusive community with the perfect balance of fun and academia.”

“…such a mix of people from different backgrounds and who have different interests… you will find people who are like you.”
