University of Oxford

Political Creative City Rural Collegiate

Ucas code: O33

There's a reason why Oxford is the world's most famous university, and it's not because of the nice old buildings or pretty countryside. It's not even because we wrote the English dictionary. It's because you'll find here the best academics, widest range of resources and the finest cohort of fellow students anywhere in the world. Oxford students come from more than 140 countries.
