Brasenose
Somerville
St. Peters
St. Hughes
St. Edmund Hall
St. Catherines
St. Annes
Queens

and this is based on:

1.) Closeness to city centre - clubs etc!!
2.) Quality of accommodation and how permanent it is
3.) IT Facilities
4.) Where it is near other colleges and really "integrated" in ox uni - if ya know what i mean. i.e.) not isolated/on its own.
5.) general facilities and atmosphere

thanks a lot.

I spent four days in Brasenose this week and thought it was very nice; although I have not seenmany other colleges I would certainly recommend it.

It is very central and close to many other colleges (Lincoln, Execter, Jesus, All Souls, ...). I found everyone there to be very friendly, it is a small college and not a really academic one so if that is what you are looking for then I would recommend that.

However, I would say that you should spend some time looking at the prospectus and website and then perhaps go to some open days. Through these sources you should be able to find the answers to your questions.

when u mean "not an academic one" i dont understand at u mean. u mean as in "people often socailize and go out, ahve a luagh etc. more than perhaps oxford is stereotyped for"?

by the way, what is the accommodation and facilities like? is tehre permanent accommodation for all 3 years of the degree? is it near oxford city centre?

thanks 4 helping, and least some1 has!

For Physics it is preferable to have further maths

If you think Physics is not about maths, then think again
