Postgraduate Admissions

Postgraduate Admissions

St Catherine's has one of the largest graduate intakes of the colleges admitting both undergraduates and graduates. We admit students from a wide mix of disciplines and backgrounds, which makes our community a particularly lively and stimulating place to study, socialize and live.

St Catherine's will be happy to consider applications for any programme of study offered by the University, but subjects related to the interests of the Fellows of the College are especially encouraged.The policy of the College from its foundation has been to integrate graduates closely into the academic and social life of the College.

Our Tutor for Graduates, who is a Fellow of the College, has responsibility for the interests and welfare of graduate students. All graduate students are also allocated a College Advisor (in addition to their University Supervisor) who is a Fellow of the College in or near their subject field.

Our MCR or "Middle Common Room" is the base within College for all graduate students. The MCR provides support beyond the regular subject-based academic structures at Oxford, represents the interests of graduate students at Catz, and offers a bulging academic, social, and sporting calendar. One of the highlights is the MCR's regular Friday Guest Night Dinner in Hall. Details of this and much more can be found on the MCR's web-pages.
