The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world, the world's second-oldest university in continuous operation and number one amongst the foremost prestigious educational establishments in the world. It grew apace from 1167 once Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. When disputes arose between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge. The 2 English ancient universities share several features and are typically together referred to as Oxbridge.
The university is made up of 39 semi-autonomous constituent colleges, six permanent private halls, and a range of academic departments which are organised into four divisions. All the colleges are self-governing institutions within the university, each controlling its own membership and with its own internal structure and activities. All students are members of a college. It does not have a main campus, and its buildings and facilities are scattered throughout the city centre. Undergraduate teaching at Oxford is organised around weekly small-group tutorials at the colleges and halls – a feature unique to the Oxbridge system. These are supported by classes, lectures, seminars, laboratory work and occasionally further tutorials provided by the central university faculties and departments. Postgraduate teaching is provided predominantly centrally.Advertisement (continue below)
The graduation rate of University of Oxford is 99.51% (bachelors).
