Oxford is indisputably one of the world’s best and most prestigious universities. With small seminar groups and one-on-one tutorials, the University’s teaching style is designed to cultivate the talents of each individual student and help them excel, and this is reflected in the impressive attainment record of its students, both academically and in their subsequent careers. Graduates from Oxford are highly sought after by employers in a wide range of fields and enjoy significantly higher starting salaries than graduates from other UK universities.
The city itself is also a major draw. Despite being quite small, Oxford is a thriving, cosmopolitan city, with a wealth of restaurants, shops, plenty of nightlife and several major cultural attractions, including the world’s first university museum and the UK’s second largest library. Oxford also features extensive parklands and some of the United Kingdom’s finest pre-20th century architecture. In short, it’s a beautiful, safe and exciting place to live, small enough to cycle across with ease but large enough to keep you fully occupied during your free time.
