Univ is home to a large and vibrant group of graduate students across a wide range of disciplines. Applications for graduate study are submitted and processed through the academic department, and a College assigned after an offer has been made. Students choose to mark Univ as their College choice for many reasons including our supportive community, highly generous studentships for fees and maintenance, and active graduate body. The University of Oxford website has plenty of information about applying for graduate study, including fees and funding information and application requirements.
University College highly values diversity in its student body. The College is committed to fairness and transparency in its admissions procedures, and it has invested heavily in outreach and recruitment activities to widen participation among under-represented groups. We recognise that all applications to Univ have a context, and we take account of that context when making admissions decisions. We admit students solely on the basis of academic merit and academic potential. There is no statistically significant differential success rate among applicants to Univ according to their ethnic, regional or educational background.
Note About Tutor Changes
Univ is proud of our diverse and engaged team of academic staff. Please note, however, any individual tutor may move on and that in any given year a number of our tutors may be on research leave. We cannot therefore guarantee that you would be taught by the tutors listed on this website should you come here to study. The College will ensure that fully qualified staff are available to cover research leave. A number of Univ’s academic staff are primarily involved in research and, therefore, some of the academic staff listed on our website may not deliver undergraduate teaching.
