St Anne’s is a down-to-earth, friendly and independent-minded college that takes people for what they are. It is modern in its outlook and architecture and open to the world, informal and yet academically demanding. We are one of Oxford’s largest colleges, with some 446 undergraduates and 300 graduates. Our Fellows’ interests range across the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Physical and Medical Sciences.

Since its founding, St Anne’s College has always been about widening access to an Oxford Education. It uniquely allowed women from the UK and many other countries to study at Oxford, whilst living more flexibly and affordably at home or in lodgings across the city. Earlier this year the Governing Body of St Anne’s reaffirmed the College’s purpose to be a diverse and inclusive community contributing to the University’s commitment to lead the world in education and research, whilst securing the College’s legacy and future. St Anne’s wants to be the home of choice for the brightest and most ambitious students including those from underrepresented groups and believes that difference should be respected, promoted and celebrated as the diversity of people is a rich source of learning for us all.

We take our responsibilities for the welfare of our students extremely seriously. There is a large welfare team. Most of our undergraduate students choose to live in College throughout their time here. We offer a wide range of graduate scholarships and can offer graduate accommodation to almost half of our graduates.
