With its world-known university, Oxford provides students with the inspiration to pursue their learning goals and achieve success. The city is the ideal size – not large enough for it to have lost character but also big enough for it to offer all sorts of exciting educational, work and leisure opportunities. Oxford is by far one of the most stunning and welcoming cities in the UK, which is why Brits and foreigners alike flock to it to both work and study.
