Oxford University Scholarships - more on Oxford University Scholarship
Oxford has a world-class reputation for academic excellence.
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 tutors, tailored to each student’s learning needs.
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. As well as tutorials in college, students share lectures, classes and practicals in their department, depending on their subject. The Oxford system combines the best of one-to-one or small-group teaching in college with the wealth of resources in the University.
Oxford University provides a diverse study environment: undergraduate students represent over 130 nationalities as well as all nations and regions of the UK.
Beautiful and historic architecture sits alongside all the main high street stores, numerous coffee shops and restaurants, and a thriving bar and club scene. Oxford also boasts a surprising amount of green spaces, including beautiful riverside walks, the oldest botanic garden in the country, the University Parks and college gardens. Most colleges and departments are situated in and around the city center, and accommodation is usually on the main college site, or is only a short walk or cycle ride away from other college and University buildings.
Students have access to resources across the University: unrivalled libraries, sports facilities, laboratories, language-learning opportunities, computer equipment and music facilities.
Most colleges offer student accommodation for two years of a course, and many can offer accommodation for every year of a course, saving students the trouble and expense of privately rented accommodation. Colleges are very safe places, with a Porters’ Lodge at the entrance. The porters deal with visitors and oversee security. All college rooms are either in the city center or very close to it. Most private accommodation is also within a 15-minute walk or short cycle ride of the center. In Oxford, there is no need to spend money on bus fares, as students would in larger cities.
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.
With clubs, societies and events organized by both colleges and the wider University, as well as a vibrant city nightlife, Oxford offers opportunities for whatever social life students may be looking for.
Oxford University has an excellent graduate employment record. Students have the use of the comprehensive careers service and enter a huge range of careers. Employers recognize that Oxford’s rigorous academic degree courses give graduates many transferable skills, as well as breadth and depth in their chosen subject.
