Open days are the best time to explore student life at Oxford – visit places not normally open to the public - and talk to current students and tutors. You can just turn up to most events but some require booking, so check first and plan your day at ox.ac.uk/opendays.

“After feeling the atmosphere and exploring the city on an open day I knew I wanted to spend the next few years of my life in Oxford.” Sam

“The tutors and students I spoke to on the open day were all incredibly encouraging and welcoming and I loved the thought of studying in such a unique community of passionate and friendly students.” Francesca

If you can't make one of these days, please see page 188 [print edition page number] or ox.ac.uk/ugvisit.

Have a look at our virtual college tours at ox.ac.uk/ugcolls.

Introducing Oxford

Why Oxford?

The first UK university to be no. 1 in the world* [Transcribers’ note: asterisk note reads: Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016-17. End of note]

“Oxford is a fantastic university, renowned for academic excellence — the teaching is world class, and being taught by experts in my subject area in this way really appealed to me. Also, Oxford is a really great city, so this factored into my decision too.” Megan

“Though the academic reputation was definitely a factor, I was really attracted by the collegiate structure. Everything works on a smaller scale with concentrated resources, a close-knit community and highly individual teaching with tutors who take a real interest in you.” Archie

“Funnily enough, Oxford was also actually the cheapest place for me to go to university. Even before I was aware of the Moritz-Heyman Scholarship, the Oxford Bursaries scheme is the most comprehensive one at the time of my application.” Bertrand


No. 1 in the world for research quality** [Transcribers’ note: double asterisk note reads: Most recent UK Research Excellence Framework (2014). End of note]

“There are constantly career-related events at Oxford. If you know what you want to do, this place provides amazing networking opportunities. If you don’t know quite what you're doing, the Careers Service is always putting on talks, workshops, 1:1 sessions and fairs. They are really helpful and a great source of ideas. There is also a lot of information on further study including exciting opportunities abroad.” Lilian

“I'd never thought about applying to somewhere so prestigious, but I was lucky enough to be encouraged by a fantastic maths teacher. Both the academic reputation and the beautiful city were enough to win me over, and since applying I have never looked back.” Ian

“Oxford is known all over the world for academic excellence and l think the unique collegiate system plays a huge part in that. I chose Oxford because l thought it would be an unbelievable opportunity for me if l was fortunate enough to be successful in my application.” Naveed
