A Message from the Principal
Sir Peter North
Welcome to the new Jesus College web site. I hope that you will find much
information to interest you, whether you are thinking about applying
for admission to the College, are already in Oxford, are an Old Member
of the College, are looking for a conference venue or are simply curious
about this College.
Jesus College has been a centre of learning and research for over four
hundred years. It admits approximately a hundred undergraduates a year,
and one hundred and twenty graduate students, from all over the world,
are in residence at any one time. The College’s main site is right in
the middle of Oxford but it also has purpose-built student flats, fairly
close to the College - one group of flats adjoins the College’s sports
ground. All students, undergraduate or graduate, can live in College
accommodation for the whole of their time in Oxford.
Whilst the College places right and proper emphasis on academic
development and success, and has over fifty Fellows involved in teaching
and research, it offers a wide range of other opportunities - cultural,
sporting and intellectual. It has a real concern for the care and
support of students and believes that the College should be a place
where students may both develop their full potential and readily make
friends. It welcomes applicants for admission from students whatever
their educational background, and whether from this country or abroad.
Decisions on admission are made entirely on merit.
If you would like to learn more about the College, do contact us
through the various addresses on this web site, or visit the College
itself. You will be most welcome.
