Oxford is simply a wonderful city. It’s where Alice in Wonderland was imagined and where Harry Potter was filmed. Lord of the Rings was inspired by the places and people here, as was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. For hundreds of years Oxford has stimulated the mind and fed the soul.
For students there’s nowhere better to study, and the student lifestyle is amazing! The community spirit is excellent and the social activities run throughout the day and into the night. As a student with OBC you’ll have a student card, giving you access to student-organised activities and discounts on clothes, food and travel. Our Student Council helps students to organise social events and sporting activities, so there’s always something to do and friends to do it with. Of course there are also two large universities in the city – Oxford University itself and Oxford Brookes – as well as many other colleges and schools, meaning that the brightest minds in the world are working and relaxing all around you.
As you walk around the tree-lined streets, you will be lifted by the beauty of the buildings and the buzz of the people. You can cycle round town and along the canals with other young people, or even take a bus trip on the famous River Thames. If you want to get to London there are regular trains and buses; the journey can take less than an hour. There’s no city quite like Oxford, and your time living here will be a treasured memory for life.
Oxford will inspire you to greatness.
