    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!

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