Visiting Students

It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you're a student living and studying outside the European Union, our Visiting Student programme offers you the chance to be challenged academically by outstanding tutors, inspired by a beautiful living and working environment, and immersed in a vibrant social, sporting and artistic community.

You'll study at St Edmund Hall for up to one year alongside Oxford undergraduates, and we'll be working hard to ensure that your experiences here will match those of our regular students. You'll be given accommodation with our own undergraduates and study the same subjects, often sharing tutorials with students on the Oxford courses.

Many of our Visiting Students come from the USA on a Junior Year Abroad, but we also have Visiting Students joining us from countries all over the world. Unfortunately we're not able to accept Visiting Student applications from students who are studying within the European Union.

“The community at Teddy Hall is small but very welcoming. Whether in the dining hall or the library or walking around the front quad, there is always a familiar face to say hello.

"Academically, Teddy Hall has challenged me to go beyond just learning the subject material. My tutors push me to think about what I’m learning and why the material is important to the field. The tutorial system allows me to articulate what I am interested in and explore those course topics further. After studying mathematics at Teddy, I feel prepared to apply to graduate programs in mathematics knowing I have a strong background and a better idea of the areas in which I want to specialise.

"Outside of academics, I have had many opportunities to get involved in activities both at college and university levels. I took the opportunity to learn how to row and immediately connected with the other women on the team. In addition, I took part in the Newman Catholic Society and the Mirzhakani Society for women in mathematics.”

Emily also worked as a photo intern for the College during her first term here, and you can view some of her photos below.
