Oxford’s students and staff come from every background imaginable. There are around 24,000 students from over 140 countries at Oxford, studying here as undergraduates and postgraduates. Their amazing range of stories and interests help make Oxford one of the most exciting learning environments anywhere, as well as one with extraordinary resources to offer its students.
There is universal agreement that Oxford needs to make rapid progress in diversifying its undergraduate and graduate student bodies. Diversity is important as a social good in its own right, and it is manifestly in Oxford’s self-interest – for the University to continue to thrive, it needs to recruit the best people from all backgrounds. Greater diversity will strengthen the University’s intellectual vitality.
