Why choose Queen's?
Any student of Queen’s would promote the College enthusiastically, and for good reason.

Academics

We have an exceptionally strong and long-standing academic tradition. Our world-class tutors are passionate about teaching and committed to supporting our students through their chosen degree courses. The College has a wealth of resources to support its students and facilitate their academic work, from its beautiful and well-stocked library to its academic support grants.

Visit the Subjects and Courses page for more details. 

Living here

As a fully-catered college, we offer great food as well as high-quality accommodation for the duration of your course.  Please visit here for details.

First-rate sports facilities, a thriving musical scene, an abundance of clubs and societies and a welcoming College bar mean that breaks from academic work are not hard to fill!

Location

Our beautiful College buildings are in the heart of the city, on the High Street, just a few minutes’ walk from most parts of the University and the town. Buses to other parts of the city, to London, and to the airports, stop right on our doorstep.

Size

We welcome 90-100 new undergraduates every year. Queen’s is a friendly and close-knit college where you can easily get to know your fellow students across different subjects and year-groups. We are large enough for there to be a thriving community in all areas of College life. 

There are normally over 150 graduates in residence, amounting to about a third of the College’s student numbers. Our graduate intake is international and covers a wide range of subjects.  Please visit our postgraduate admissions pages for more information.

Finance

We have a generous system of grants and scholarships to reward excellent work and help students who run into financial difficulties. Our library buys books on request and there is also a system of book grants to help students buy academic books. Don’t forget that College food and drink, as well as our accommodation, is subsidised.

Sample prices of food and accommodation can be found here.

Remember…

Although we are keen to promote Queen’s as a great place to live and study, we also understand that choosing a particular college can sometimes complicate the process of applying to Oxford.  Please visit the University-wide college-choice page for more advice on how to choose a college.
