An Overview of Oxford University’s Wolfson College by Theodore H. Friedman

Wolfson College, one of Oxford University’s 38 constituent colleges, is the largest graduate college in Oxford. Known for its egalitarian approach to education and informal, multicultural atmosphere, the college encourages students to freely engage with Fellows and welcomes a diverse body of international students.

With programs in the humanities and sciences, Wolfson offers interdisciplinary “research clusters” that allow students to draw on several areas of study. Many pursue research programs in such fields as the ancient world, quantum foundations, and South Asia research.

Close to 50 scholarships exist to help Wolfson College students, including the Charlie Perkins Scholarship, which waives tuition fees, and the Clarendon-Wolfson Scholarships, which cover up to three years of study. More information can be found at www.wolfson.ox.ac.uk.
