Welcoming, supportive and committed to excellence - find out more about studying at St Anne'sread more ›
The great strength of Oxford is that every college is different. St Anne’s distinguishes itself as a down-to-earth, friendly and independent-minded place that takes people for what they are and enjoys the range of backgrounds and experience of its students. It is modern and open to the world, informal and yet academically ambitious.
St Anne’s is a young college by Oxford’s standards; founded in 1879 as the Society of Home Students, we celebrated 60 years as a full College of the University in 2012. It is also one of the largest, with a diverse and lively mix of over 400 undergraduate and 300 postgraduate students, with an academic fellowship that ranges across the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Physical and Medical Sciences.
Many choose to apply to St Anne’s after visiting us for an Open Day because they like its engaging and accessible atmosphere. Students say that the value of studying here is that you can be yourself, whoever you are.
The College also welcomes applications for our Visiting Students Programme, where international students apply to study for up to a year alongside our undergraduate students.
