About the University of Oxford and Scholarship
The University of Oxford is one of the most prestigious and oldest universities in the world, located in Oxford, England. It has a rich history of academic excellence, dating back to 1096, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the second-oldest continuously operating university globally.
Oxford University experienced significant growth from 1167 onward, especially after Henry II prohibited English students from attending the University of Paris. Disputes between students and the townsfolk of Oxford in 1209 led to the establishment of the University of Cambridge, where some academics relocated. Together, Oxford and Cambridge are commonly referred to as Oxbridge, sharing many common features.
The university comprises thirty-nine semi-autonomous constituent colleges, four permanent private halls, and various academic departments organized into four divisions. Each college is a self-governing institution within the university, with its membership, structure, and activities. All students at Oxford are affiliated with a specific college. Unlike many universities, Oxford does not have a centralized campus, and its buildings and facilities are spread throughout the city.
Teaching at Oxford involves a mix of lectures, small-group tutorials at colleges and halls, seminars, laboratory work, and occasional additional tutorials offered by central university faculties and departments. Postgraduate teaching tends to be more centralized.
Oxford consistently ranks among the top universities globally. It currently holds the first position in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and Forbes World University Rankings. It has held the top spot in the Times Good University Guide for eleven consecutive years. Additionally, the medical school at Oxford has maintained its first-place ranking in the “Clinical, Pre-Clinical & Health” category of the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings for the past seven years. Oxford University is widely recognized for its academic excellence and is considered one of the world’s “six super brands” on the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings.
