  • Comprehensive STEM offerings in the classic Oxford context also include labs.
  • St. Edmund students are well known throughout the University for taking their sports seriously.
  • Enjoy an abundant selection of extracurricular activities, including the drama society and the Terry Jones Society, which organizes trips to nearby plays and concerts.
  • Students receive individual guidance from their tutor and benefit from the tutor’s expert knowledge.
  • Unique tutorial instruction allows students to work independently and develop their own academic ideas.

Most visiting students at St. Edmund Hall live in flats (apartments) a 5-20 minute walk from the college. Meals are provided in the college dining halls, reported to be among the best among Oxford colleges.
