5 Ways to visit OXFORD 329

Can’t come to Oxford? 329

Academic excellence

Oxford’s intensive teaching style is intellectually challenging, and leads to a world-class education. See pp 4–5 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]

Generous financial support

Oxford is committed to providing generous support to Home/EU students from the lowest-income backgrounds. See pp 120–121 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]

Top career outcomes

When our undergraduates go on to full-time work, they have a median income 20% higher than the UK average within 6 months of graduating. See pp 122–123 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]

Hundreds of course options

Oxford offers traditional courses and more unusual ones, some of which are unique to us. See pp 16–117 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]

Individual attention

Oxford is made up of small academic communities called colleges, where you will be taught in small groups or even one-to-one. See pp 124–163 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]

World-class resources

Oxford’s libraries and museums are second to none in their historical buildings and collections. Whether your interest is fossils or first editions, you can find something to interest you here. See pp 172–175 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]

At the cutting edge

Yes, we are an innovative research institution, but that’s not all that’s modern about Oxford. We have many brand-new buildings and a wifi network covering most of the city centre. See p 176 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]

A diverse student body

Whoever you are and wherever you’re from, Oxford wants to welcome you. We have students from 142 different countries and aged 16–77. See pp 177–181 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]

The Oxford experience

Oxford students like to play as hard as they work. The city has vibrant nightlife and a thriving live music scene, while hundreds of student societies cover every conceivable interest. See pp 166–171 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]
