The University of Oxford

About The University of Oxford

The University of Oxford aims to lead the world in research and education.

We seek to do this in ways which benefit society on a national and a global scale. Oxford was the first University in the English-speaking world. We have more than 22,000 students.

41 per cent of our academic staff, and one third of our students, are citizens of countries outside the UK.

There are many universities, but Oxford retains a special place in the academic landscape of the UK and in the hearts of those who live, study and teach here. There are even more reasons why Oxford generates such admiration, pride and loyalty.

Taken individually, these reasons may not be unique, but when viewed together they form the characteristics that have differentiated the University from all others for hundreds of years and will continue to form the essence of the Oxford experience for years to come.
