Somerville has a long history of graduate study, and was one of the first colleges to house postgraduates within their own college accommodation, where our graduates still reside today.

Applying to Oxford as a postgraduate

Unlike our undergraduates, graduate admissions are handled centrally by the University. That means you'll need to apply to Oxford and be accepted on a course before you can be considered for a place at a College. In the meantime, we've got all kinds of useful information for you in the following pages, including details of the courses we offer, the scholarships that are available and a glimpse of what life is like as a graduate at Somerville โ€“ at the heart of a true academic community.

It's #NationalPoetryDay, which means that dangerous unidentified poetry could be lurking around every corner. ๐Ÿ‘€ Read this public safety poem from our alumna Elma Mitchell carefully, and don't forget to send us any Somervillian poems that ambush you today for expert defusal by commenting them below ๐Ÿ‘‡

'This Poem', by Elma Mitchell (1938, English)

This poem is dangerous: It should not be left
Within the reach of children, or even adults
Who might swallow it whole, with possibly
Undesirable side-effects. If you come across
An unattended, unidentified poem
In a public place, do not attempt to tackle it
Yourself. Send it (preferably, in a sealed container)
To the nearest centre of learning, where it will be rendered
Harmless, by experts. Even the simplest poem
May destroy your immunity to human emotions.
All poems must carry a Government warning. Words
Can seriously affect your heart.
Massive congratulations to our recent grad Shah Moore (2018, Psychology), who has just won the British Neuropsychological Society's Undergraduate Project Prize 2021! ๐ŸŽ‰

'It's beginning to look a lot like students'
Sexual harassment and violence of any form is never acceptable. Our campaign with Oxford SU focuses on the range of support available for our students, including our Support Service. 

The Oxford SU has also created a brilliant Consent Matters course. If you havenโ€™t had time to take it yet, make sure to do so before term gets too busy. It doesnโ€™t take long to complete and covers important topics to help you understand consent, communication and looking out for others - link in bio.

2nd year helpers represent! These guys are even wearing their shiny new Somerville tees. Ask them where to go and they'll help you out. #theyknoweverything #somervillefreshers
We can't wait to welcome all our new students over the next few days! Remember, just ask anyone if you're not sure what to do. Several members of academic office and housekeeping can be seen here proving that we definitely don't bite! #SomervilleFreshers
