We admit approximately 100 graduates every year, of whom some are New College undergraduates staying on to do graduate work. 

Applying to New College

To apply to New College, applicants must apply to the University of Oxford following the procedure described on the University website, and nominate New College as their first choice college. They must first be accepted by the department or faculty in which they wish to study. Their application will then be considered by the college(s) chosen.

The scholarly interests of our graduate students are very diverse: as well as those reading for advanced degrees in both Sciences and Humanities, we admit each year a good number of clinical medical students, candidates for the PGCE, and a few graduates reading for undergraduate honours degrees. 

In addition to teaching and supervision provided by the University faculties, each graduate is appointed a College Advisor, who is one of the Fellows of the College. The College Advisor's role is generally to provide support and encouragement to graduate students, and to assist with their integration into the life of the College.
