Hello together,

I am an international student currently applying for a masters degree at Xxford.

Could somebody be so nice and explain me how the college system works for graduate students? My classes should be offered by the department no matter what college I am in, but will there be special sessions I have to attend which are only within the specific college? Or is the college just there to offer another community besides all the classmates in the course?

I always hear that Oxford (and Cambridge) are so special because of their college systems, but I just never quite understood how it worked.

I would also be happy to hear some of you guys talking about the environment in general, and how Oxford is special to you or in general.

Thank you in advance!

You're pretty much correct. Undergrads have teaching from college, but for most grads college forms a much smaller part of their lives. You could probably have some kind of advisor in college as a contact, and in some cases PhD students do teaching for the college they are at, but you'll probably find its mostly a social/accommodation/sports thing.
