About
As (some would argue) the most prestigious university in the world, Oxford doesn’t need much of an introduction. While having no known date of foundation, there is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096, making the school the oldest university in the English-speaking world. The university operates the world’s oldest university museum, as well as the largest university press in the world and the largest academic library system in Britain, centred around the pristine Bodleian Library. These are among numerous historical buildings belonging to the university, which is well-known for it’s astonishing architecture. Academic and social life is organised into 38 Colleges like Christ Church, Balliol, and Merton. Student societies include the Oxford Union, one of the most famous debating clubs in the world, having hosted speakers ranging from Bill Clinton to Shakira. Many Oxford alumni go on to become prominent figures within politics, business and the media. It is the university in the UK that has historically graduated the largest number of prime ministers.
