Oxford has a world-class reputation for academic excellence. For information about undergraduate courses available, and how to make your choice, please see the course list.

Oxford University is accessible to all students of talent and ability, whatever their background. A generous programme of bursaries ensures that finance should not be a barrier to any UK student who wants to apply to Oxford. For further details please read more about student funding.

Oxford is one of the few universities in the world that bases its teaching on the tutorial system, which means more individual attention and teaching from your tutors, tailored to your learning needs. See our pages on studying at Oxford for more information.

Many Oxford tutors are international experts in their chosen fields. This engagement with research and scholarship enables students to have an enhanced understanding of their subject discipline.

College life is one of the University’s greatest assets, since a close college community provides a friendly and welcoming home for students who are living away for the first time. Students soon get to know each other, and tutors get to know students individually, enabling them to respond to their individual academic needs. For information on Oxford colleges please refer to college information.

Students have access to resources across the University: unrivalled libraries, sports facilities, laboratories, language-learning opportunities, computer equipment and music facilities. Read our pages on facilities and services for more information.

Oxford University provides a diverse study environment: undergraduate students represent over 130 nationalities as well as all nations and regions of the UK. We have specific admissions information for international students.

With clubs, societies and events organised by both colleges and the wider University, as well as a vibrant city nightlife, Oxford offers opportunities for whatever social life you may be looking for. See some examples.

Most colleges offer student accommodation for two years of your course, and many can offer accommodation for every year of your course, saving you the trouble and expense of privately rented accommodation. For more information on where Oxford students live please see our accommodation pages.
