University of Oxford

Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world. The exact date of foundation is not known, but teaching existed at Oxford in some form in 1096 and developed rapidly from 1167, when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.
Over 20,000 students study at Oxford, including 11,734 undergraduates and 8,101 postgraduates. Oxford has one of the lowest drop-out rates in the UK: figures published in summer 2009 by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) show that only 1.8 per cent of Oxford students dropped out, compared with the national average of 9 per cent.

International students

Oxford’s university community is truly international. Students currently come from 138 countries around the world and study a wide range of subjects. They make up one third of the student body, including 14 % of their full-time undergraduate students and 63 % of their full-time postgraduates.

The Student Information and Advisory Service is responsible for providing advice about issues affecting international students, including immigration questions, and assisting students needing to extend their visas. It coordinates a meet and greet service at Oxford bus station for students arriving at the start of the academic year, runs an annual Orientation Programme for new students.

Studies

Oxford offers a distinctive form of undergraduate education, unique in the world to Oxford and Cambridge. It is an exciting place to pursue postgraduate/graduate education. They offer two types of programmes:

•    Master’s: these are 1 or 2 year degrees. Many people take these degrees as a professional qualification, and then leave to work. For others, usually in the humanities and social sciences, these are the essential first step on the road to a doctorate and an academic or research-based career.
•    Doctorate: their doctorate is known as a D.Phil not Ph.D. It is a research-intensive degree, lasting 3-4 years.

Funding

Oxford offers a variety of funding possibilities for undergraduate and graduate students.
Funding is available for undergraduate and graduate students at Oxford, including government support, the Oxford Opportunity Bursary Scheme, and extra support available from college funds, University hardship funds, funding for student parents and students with disabilities.
Use their Oxford Funding Search to determine which scholarships you may be eligible for.

    1. Dear gurleen,

      Nice to hear that you want to be a designer in oxford, but sorry to disappoint. We are not the Oxford University, so we cannot admit you anywhere. Try and contact the University directly and ask which steps you need to take in order to be admitted there, and study what you like.

      Regards,

  4. Da li postoji mogućnost za Master program iz oblasti Engleskog jezika i književnosti na Oksfordu, koji je u potpunosti ili skoro potpuno finansiran od strane tamošnjeg Univerziteta, tj. Oksforda?

  5. hey, im only 14 years of age and i live in the Caribbean. if i get a scholarship to Oxford and i will like to stay in the UK to work will it be a problem that i will have to go back to my country to provide 3 years service? or i can work in the UK and pay the Government back.

    1. Dear Lintia,

      These are questions best posed to the University of Oxford because Mladiinfo is not responsible for administering the scholarships or providing you with visa support. Please visit the official website above and find the appropriate contact information there.

      Kind regards,
      Mladiinfo team

        1. Dear Litia,

          it is better to address even this question directly to Oxford university. Mladiinfo only informs about possibilities of scholarships at Oxford, but all the administration is in the competences of the university.

          Kind regards,
          Mladiinfo team
