Living in Oxford as a student
A stunning setting for one of the world’s greatest universities, Oxford is the iconic student destination.
Oxford is the home of the University of Oxford, which is the oldest University in the English-speaking world, and the second oldest University in the world. It is made up of 39 colleges, organised into 4 divisions: Humanities, Medical Sciences, Mathematical, Physics and Life Sciences Division, and the Social Sciences Division. It not only operates the world’s oldest University museum but also the world’s largest University press as well, and if that wasn’t enough it also holds the largest academic library system in the UK too.
It is also home to the Oxford Brookes University as well. What began life as a small School of Art in borrowed buildings is now one of the most modern universities in the UK. It is also the only UK University in the QS ranking of top 50 institutions under 50 years old for the third year in a row. Oxford Brookes also holds the record for the number one rowing University in the UK – after winning a raft of medals.
While there is much to be gained from studying at Oxford, there is also much to do when you are not hard at work as well. As a centre of tourism, there are many galleries and museums in Oxford, many of which are free of charge.

There is also a lot of green space in the city, with 28 nature reserves in the boundary of the ring road alone.
Sport is also a popular entertainment in Oxford, with their leading football club Oxford United currently sitting in League one and semi-professional team Oxford City FC playing in conference South. There are also two rugby league teams and four rugby union teams in Oxford. Other sports you can enjoy include American football, cricket, greyhound racing, hockey, ice hockey, rowing, and speedway.
Oxford is also home to some of the most traditional pubs in the country, with those on the banks of the River Thames offering some awesome food as well.
