College experience

Many of our programmes come with membership to one of Oxford's 39 Colleges.

If the programme you are hoping to attend involves being a member of a college, you will need to select your preferences during the admissions process.

There are many factors to consider in your choice of college, including location, accommodation, and social activities.

Living expenses

On top of your programme fees, you will need to consider the incidental costs of your time in Oxford, whether you are here for a short stay or living in the city for the duration of a full-time degree.


Partners and families

We provide a range of support for partners and families joining you in Oxford.

We can help you secure appropriate accommodation, childcare and financial support to keep your family close. 


The University of Oxford is a vibrant, diverse and international community.

Many of our students require visas to study in the UK. We have compiled useful information on visas for prospective students.
