Undergraduate Study



I chose Christ’s because of the size, location and atmosphere. It’s a medium-small College, so I know everyone in my year, in the centre of town, so nothing was ever too far away, and the atmosphere is extremely friendly.


From John Milton and Charles Darwin to Abioseh Davidson Nicol: Christ’s has long nurtured outstanding scholars, from all kinds of background, giving them the tools to ‘think differently’ and break new ground across the sciences and the arts.

We welcome students of all nationalities, and from every walk of life, who are passionate about their subject, committed to academic excellence and keen to explore new ideas in a positive, enabling environment. Our current students come from over 60 countries, and all regions of Britain, and our active network of alumni includes leaders in politics, business, research and creative industries around the world.

The College’s architecture reflects both the diversity of our intake and the variety of our students’ interests: you may live in medieval splendour, restrained Victorian elegance, or the radical concrete Modernism of New Court. Around half of our student rooms are ensuite, and all undergraduates are accommodated within five minutes’ walk of the main College facilities, which include a café/bar, a formal dining hall and less formal self-service canteen, together with a theatre, art studio, music practice rooms, and a well-stocked library, open 24 hours a day.

Christ’s is centrally located, with instant access to the shops and cafés of the city centre, but its extensive gardens offer an oasis of calm amidst the hubbub, and conceal a seventeenth-century swimming pool, alongside a modern gym and squash court and (occasionally) the College cat; the tennis courts, badminton courts, playing fields and boathouse are a short cycle-ride away.

Our community is large enough to sustain a range of clubs, teams and societies, and small enough to ensure that it remains close-knit, and the support we provide for our students starts from the moment they first contact us. So if you’d like to know more, please do get in touch.
