St John’s College St John’s offers a beautiful and stimulating environment with a friendly and diverse community. The College has been helping students to realise their potential for more than 500 years.

The atmosphere at St John’s is lively, challenging and inspiring. We’re committed to providing a world class education in an exciting multicultural environment where you’ll thrive and exceed your own expectations. Our central riverside grounds provide easy access to University facilities. We accommodate all undergraduates on-site, promoting a strong sense of community. The many student-run clubs and societies provide a great way to get involved in College life; whether you

want to watch a film, discuss politics, make music, dance, play sport or take a College punt on the river.

‘I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first year, there’s always something going on around College.’ Sameena

One of the most important experiences we offer is the chance to be part of a group that achieves distinction at the highest level. Whether at a concert, in the library, or in conversation over dinner, you’ll be immersed in a world where the exchange of ideas is enthusiastic, unpretentious and motivating.

One of the best ways to experience what the College has to offer is to come and see for yourself. Dr Helen Watson, the Admissions Tutor, and the Admissions and Access Team are happy to offer advice or arrange visits for individuals and schools.

‘There’s a huge diversity of people at College which makes it a really fun place to be, with fantastic facilities for whatever you want to do. The food is also really good and the accommodation is fantastic.’ Saffiya ‘Many people where I come from thought it was far away and socially exclusive. The reality is that people from all sorts of backgrounds come here to live and study.’ Tom

Coming here has been a fantastic journey and I’m grateful for all the opportunities that the College has given me as a student. It’s inspired me to encourage teenagers from all sorts of backgrounds to follow their dreams and consider applying. Michael
