University of Oxford
7.7 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 218 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"This is a big debate, one which Oxford is highly aware of. Part of the problem is that people who need to be better represented are discouraged from applying precisely because of this image. My advice is APPLY! Oxford does take people based on merit, and does understand circumstance. Don't be put off by Oxford's public school reputation, it exists, but it's no more than a strand."
