  • Oxford's teaching and research is consistently in the top rank nationally and internationally, and is at the forefront of medical, scientific and technological achievement.
  • The University has excellent facilities and resources for learning in its world-famous libraries, laboratories and museums.
  • Students come to Oxford from 140 different countries and territories.
  • Oxford's collegiate system fosters a sense of community between tutors and students, and among students themselves.
  • Students have the opportunity to learn alongside leading researchers in their field.

Graduate students are a valued part of the University, and make up around a third of the total student body. The University offers a wide range of taught graduate and research degrees, ranging from one to three or more years. Green Templeton, Linacre, Nuffield, St Antony's, St Cross and Wolfson admit only graduate students, as does Kellogg, which supports the lifelong learning work of the University for adult, part-time, and professional development students.
