About University of Oxford

Country the United Kingdom
Number of courses 518


There is no clear date of foundation for the university, 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. The oldest colleges---University, Balliol and Merton---were founded between 1249 and 1264.

The university is located in the city of Oxford, about 90km north-west of London.


The University of Oxford is one of the most international universities in the world with one third of their students being international students from over 140 countries. Applications to the University have to be made through the UCAS service and entry requirements for each course may vary, however, most will expect a level of English Proficiency.
