University of Oxford

Political City Rural Collegiate

Ucas code: O33

There's a reason why Oxford is the world's most famous university, and it's not because of the nice old buildings or pretty countryside. It's not even because we wrote the English dictionary. It's because you'll find here the best academics, widest range of resources and the finest cohort of fellow students anywhere in the world. Oxford students come from more than 140 countries.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
