New College warmly welcomes undergraduate and postgraduate visiting students through a number of recognised programmes. We also offer the Harlech scholarship, which funds an exchange programme with Harvard University.

Unfortunately, we are not usually able to accept applications from individuals applying outside of our programmes.

Why come to New College as a visiting student?

New College is one of the largest, most famous, and architecturally striking colleges. It is in a central, but peaceful location, close to libraries, sports facilities, and everything else that Oxford has to offer. With a warm and friendly student population of over 700, our visiting students become members of a thriving and diverse academic community. The college offers its visiting students a stimulating academic programme, along with a welcoming social environment.
