Oxford degrees cover subjects in great breadth but their huge range of options also lets you probe deeply into the areas that most interest you. You will be studying your course for three or four years or possibly more, in depth, so be sure to choose something you really want to explore further. We recommend that you read about lots of courses including some you might not have considered before. The perfect course might be something new or might combine several favourite subjects.
Joint courses at Oxford allow you to study two or more subjects together. Our joint course combinations are carefully chosen to provide opportunities to explore different subjects and examine the connections between them, revealing insights that you might not find by studying them individually. Choosing a joint course may also give you the chance to study something completely new alongside an old favourite. There are a few subjects which it is only possible to study as part of a joint course at undergraduate level, for example Philosophy or Economics.
Entrance requirements for courses at Oxford are entirely academic in nature. The tutors will consider extracurricular activities and work experience only if they help to demonstrate how you meet the selection criteria. You can demonstrate your academic ability with a huge range of different qualifications or test scores - see the individual course pages and more information at ox.ac.uk/enreqs.
