The university itself is absolutely gorgeous. The buildings are beautiful and Oxford as a city is a lovely place to study. The university is making a concerted effort to appeal to more state school students (as one myself I have never experienced any form of discrimination from the university or any other students, and in fact went to a free summer school for state school students prior to my application). The LGBTQ scene is fantastic also. The only negatives are the sports facilities are located a little out of the main city which makes them not incredibly accessible to many. However, the rowing facilities are fantastic.

Opportunity to be taught be world class academics but slow to embrace new technology in learning. Sports facilities are ok but could definitely be better.
