Wadham College, Oxford

Wadham College is close to the University Science Area, the Bodleian Library and the city centre. It has large and quite grounds with most beautiful gardens in Oxford and fine early seventieth century quad alongside modern buildings.

Distinctively in Oxford, Wadham combines its Middle Common Room (MCR) with its Junior Common Room (JCR) in order to combine Student's Union. Graduates, therefore, play a full-part in the life of the college. The Tutor for Graduates is available for advice and consultation. Additionally, each graduate student is allotted a College Advisor whose academic interest is close to the student's own.

The college is widely regarded for its informal and stimulus learning environment. Students will find in Wadham a strong sense of community where they will be treated as an individual and make friends from a broad variety of backgrounds and many nations.
