Our Vision

Unlock your potential at St Edmund Hall


St Edmund Hall promotes the advancement of university education, learning and research as a College in the University of Oxford (including maintaining its historic buildings and other patrimony, and pastoral care of its students).

Vision and Strategy

The college launched its first strategy on 1 October 2019. You can read the full strategy here.

The strategy is the Hall’s vision for the next 10 years, covering 2019-2029. It aims to move this inspiring and historic institution into the next century, keeping it as relevant to students of the future, as it has been in the past, and is today.
