We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Oxford is the UK’s oldest university city and one of the most renowned centres of higher education in the world. Situated in the south-east of England, the city is a little over 50 miles from London and has a student population of roughly 30,000.
Doing a Masters in Oxford means living and studying in a beautiful city defined by its academic heritage. Many of Oxford’s historic buildings and landmarks are associated with its famous university, including the Ashmolean Museum, Science Museum and Museum of Natural History, as well as the Sheldonian Theatre and Radcliffe Camera.
Postgraduate students in Oxford also have the opportunity to explore the original Blackwell’s Bookshop, offering hundreds of thousands of titles on miles of shelving.
Plenty more reading material is available at the Bodleian Library, which is one of the largest in Europe with over 11 million items, including a copy of Shakespeare’s First Folio (sadly, you probably won’t be allowed to borrow that, whatever your subject area!). Oxford is renowned for its literary connections in general, enjoying a close association with writers such as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Philip Pullman.
Less scholarly entertainments are available from a vibrant nightlife and live music scene that has given rise to famous acts such as Radiohead and Foals. The picturesque countryside of the Cotswolds is also within easy reach of Oxford, a designed Area of Outstanding Beauty that encompasses rolling hills, historic villages and stately homes.
Teaching has taken place at the University of Oxford since at least 1096, making it the second-oldest university in Europe and meaning that students have been studying degrees in Oxford for almost a thousand years! Today, the University of Oxford is part of the UK’s elite Russell Group and is frequently ranked as the best university in the world.
In addition to University of Oxford itself, Oxford is also home to Oxford Brookes University and Ruskin College, both of which offer postgraduate degrees.
Oxford has a diverse, hi-tech economy that spans the automotive industry, creative and digital sectors, publishing and life sciences. BMW MINI and several Formula One companies are based in the Oxfordshire region, which is also the home of Taylor & Francis and Oxford University Press – the largest university publisher in the world.
