A great university with excellent teaching. Also has a good network system for different career choices too as the lecturers and professors are all experts in their field and welcome students for placements and projects.

The university does not live up to its own name. It does not care for undergraduates and uses its reputation as a foil for delivering sub-par services and facilities. Having said that it is a place with so many opportunities if you have the support and inclination to pursue them. It is here I met friends I could have never dreamed of, learned countless things about my own conceptions and understood the value of pursuing things for one's own sake and for the sake of the thing itself. Oxford is a place for learning not teaching.

Very good city/university balance - colleges dotted around the city. The mathematics facilities are incredible, with great lecture halls and a lovely cafe.

University is dotted around the city which means that you're not separated from the city. As a mathematics student I found the facilities to be increíble, the lecture theatres and cafe couldn't be better.

Being at Oxford has certainly been an interesting experience so far. There are some distinct positives, but also an array of negatives. Whilst the buildings are often beautiful, they are often completely or majorly inaccessible. Having tutorials (lessons with 2-4 students) is often helpful in terms of providing an opportunity for students to ask questions and get feedback, but the quality is heavilu dependent on the tutor you just so happen to be assigned to. Our student union as a building is, in my opinion, underused; whilst some campaigns and societies may use it occasionally, it certainly isn't a social hub. Our officers there work hard and do implement positive changes, but our SU seems more political than social to me. The facilities in terms of the books we have access too (there has never really been a need to buy a book for my course) are fantastic but honestly I find the lack of accessibility, appropriate welfare support, and inclusion outweigh this type of thing.

The societies for LGBTQ+ students are fantastic - but this is due to students themselves and the Oxford SU rather than a university body. I think there is inadequate support for students from lower socio-economic backgrounds, and whilst some financial support may be available, there is little welfare support or recognition of the difficulties that may be faced by such students at a particularly elitist institutions.

Mental health support, like our counselling service, is limited to just six sessions. It's unable to see all the students who need it due to lack of funding. The staff are often unhelpful, and many people have found the support to be a detrimental experience. We have much short term "have a cup of tea" style support, but there is a complete lack of support for long-term or more serious conditions or situations.

Support and facilities are disabled students are horrendously bad. Most buildings have no step free access. Many colleges are slow to meet student needs. Students who are entitled to receive things like lecture slides in advance rarely ever get them. Fighting for support as a disabled student at this university is a constant battle and the support eventually provided is often extremely disappointing.

The University is beautiful and the setting couldn't be better. Easy transport links, amazing libraries and a ridiculous amount of coffee shops to work in. However, you do have to get on with it. The support system seems to need work as you are thrown in at the deep end. As a post-grad it hasn't met my expectations. On the other hand, there are many things to get involved in, societies and balls, dinners and seminars and so on. These are great chances to meet other people struggling like you and to have a whine about it all!

Every college has their own doctor and there are a lot of GP's and practices around the city to register with.

The college system means that everyone's experience of the campus/facilities/course can vary, but in general it is really excellent. I study English, and the course is really varied - you study everything from the early medieval period to the present day.

Great university town with really old buildings and great facilities. Libraries and departments are amazing and have all you need. My course is hard but rewarding and I’m really enjoying it. The student union is small, college JCR’s act as the student union and colleges have a community feel. Careers service have been very useful and available when needed.

Great University town with a lot going on. Community feeling within colleges and easily get to know incredibly interesting people. Amazing facilities that are beautiful, ranging from the really old to brand new. My course is hard but rewarding and I’m really enjoying it. Small student union, instead colleges have JCR’s that act as student unions within colleges and these laise with each other.

The university has amazing libarary resources, especially the radcam which stores just about any book you could think of, and because you can't take books out of the building, it means whatever text you need will be there. Oxford is such a beautiful city with lots to do and everything in walking distance. The nightlife is limited but it had enough, plus lots of great cocktail bars and pubs. There are so many societies, although sports at Oxford is often quite competitive and played at a high level. The academic workload is pretty high, therefore it can be hard to make time for extracurricular but it is definitely worth getting involved.
