How do I apply?

Applications for the academic year 2018-19 are now open, with the application deadline being Friday 9th February 2018. All applications are looked at in one gathered field once the deadline has passed.

Applicants are asked to submit the following:

  • A completed application form
  • A brief account of your reasons for applying to St Edmund Hall and of your extra-curricular interests
  • Two references (these may be sent separately by your referees)
  • A current transcript
  • A sample of recent academic work in each subject for which you are applying

We prefer to receive documents in one PDF bundle in the order outlined above emailed to

If you are unable to submit by email, please post your application to the Admissions Officer, Admissions Office, St Edmund Hall, OX1 4AR, United Kingdom. Please do not staple any of your documentation. 

When filling in the application form you should expect that the courses you list will be the courses you end up studying, rather than just an initial indication of preference. You should give your application careful thought and discuss it with your Study Abroad Adviser, making sure that you would be able to receive credit for your chosen courses at your home institution.

Any questions?

What if I am a Graduate Student?

The College does occasionally admit Visiting Students at Graduate level. This would usually be for students who are planning to work with a Fellow of St Edmund Hall, and applicants wishing to be considered in this way should ask the Fellow in question to consult the Admissions Office.
