In the same year, it was listed number one in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework. Every year, over 22,000 students flock to the uni, which is home to some of the most talented scientists and elite scholars - the result is a teaching environment like no other.

Life on Campus
Oxford University is not a campus university – instead, it’s made up of several different buildings, including colleges, halls and academic departments dotted around the city. Students further benefit from picture-perfect gardens for peaceful strolls, a wealth of sporting facilities, ancient libraries packed to the rafters with educational material, and a myriad of museums to explore. The result is a city-wide academic community that creates a safe and supportive environment for students to thrive.
The University of Oxford’s Students' Union keeps studiers occupied with over 400 clubs and societies. From quizzes and quidditch to ukulele, dance or Doctor Who, there’s something for everyone at Oxford.
If you’re looking to keep active, the university has 83 sports clubs to take advantage of. Rowing is the obvious choice, and the rowing clubs are open for people of all abilities and experience. Beyond rowing, many of the colleges have their own courts, pitches and facilities, while Oxford University Sport on Iffley Road offers a sports hall, a swimming pool, a gym and a running track to take advantage of.
