Magdalen (pronounced ‘Maudlen’) has some of the most beautiful buildings in Oxford, new as well as ancient. It is set in 100 acres of grounds, which include the Deer Park and Addison’s riverside walk. Magdalen’s spaciousness has helped to determine its character – diversified, informal and without pressure to conform to any stereotype or set of views. Students are represented on the key committees that run the college. The atmosphere is relaxed, but with unambiguous ambitions towards academic and extra-curricular success. Every year we aim to admit 118 undergraduates who demonstrate academic talent and commitment, entirely on merit and irrespective of social or ethnic background, in accordance with the University’s admissions policy. We welcome applications from students with disabilities. Magdalen is able to provide for students who run into financial problems. There are large numbers of travel and research grants every
