How do I apply?

The admissions cycle for the 2020-21 academic year is now open and applications can be submitted. The application deadline will be Friday 7th February 2020, with all applications being considered after the deadline.

Visiting Student applicants will be 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 to;
  • 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

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.

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.
