These allow you to connect with like-minded peers and explore interests and passions outside the classroom. Oxford University is also famous for its traditional ceremonies, such as May Morning, where students and residents gather on the streets to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Number three

Exhilarating culture:

Oxford offers a wealth of cultural and social activities. The city is home to some of the world's most famous museums and galleries, including the Ashmolean Museum, the Museum of the History of Science, and the Bodleian Library. You can also attend lectures from experts or noted celebrities, music concerts and comedy, and explore historic streets and buildings.

Number four

Beautiful scenery:

If you need a break from the intense pace of academic life, Oxford University's many green spaces offer the perfect escape. The city has over fifteen-hundred acres of parks, including the University ParksPort Meadow and the Botanic Garden and Arboretum. An ideal chance to relax alone or with friends and classmates and enjoy the natural beauty of the city.
