Why choose St Edmund Hall?

We think that choosing St Edmund Hall as your college will give you an exceptional undergraduate experience.

Here are eight reasons why:

  1. We place your academic distinction at the heart of everything we do.
  2. We’ll give you a real edge in a competitive jobs market. We're the only Oxford College to offer a Bridge-to-Business programme that offers an insight into management, strategy, finance, marketing and career planning.
  3. We provide a unique opportunity to develop excellence in activities outside of your degree subject through our Masterclass Awards, enabling you to enhance your talents through further coaching and mentoring.
  4. We have a broad range of hardship funds and scholarships, safeguarding you against withdrawal for financial reasons.
  5. You’ll benefit from an exceptional sense of community, informality and friendship that’s been consistently valued by past and present students.
  6. You’ll be able to complement your academic efforts with a large range of extra-curricular activities that include music, drama, creative writing and art, plus a diverse range of thriving and successful sports teams.
  7. Our College hall serves some of the best food in Oxford, thanks to our award-winning Head Chef. And it’s all great value too.
  8. Our Junior Common Room (JCR) is one of the largest and liveliest in the University, so you’ll get to know everyone in no time.
