Study at St Edmund Hall

The University of Oxford is a collegiate university, which means that undergraduates are members of both their department or faculty and their college.

The colleges offer accommodation, social and sporting facilities, but they are much more than halls of residence.

Each college has its own tutors and organises weekly small-group or individual tuition for its students. Most students find that their college defines their time at Oxford.

When you apply to the University of Oxford, you can either apply to a particular college or make an open application; the application process is the same in both cases.

Your college choice will not affect your chances of securing a place at Oxford, as tutors from different colleges work together to make sure that the best candidates secure places across the University.

You can find out more about how your application will be considered here.

The process for applying to the University of Oxford is standard across the colleges, so please read these pages in conjunction with the University's online prospectus.
