    I know it depends on various factors, like location, peers, funding, accomodation...
    but every university has top 2-3 colleges that stand high on reputation. Which are those?
    I am applying to Oxford this year, and have no idea about what preference I should give there. Almost all colleges provide the course I am applying for (which is Masters in World Literature in English).

    I would just chose the college you like most based on the other factors you mentioned, and if you are keen on something..like
    rowing go to a college strong in that as only the tutorials take place in college and you can always have professors from other colleges tutor you (when you specialise further along the course) but you will live in the college 3/4 years. For example, if accommodation for all years of the course is important for you try looking at Balliol (some years in annexes) or st johns (whole course on-site) Here I leave you some websites that might be useful:
    By the way, most colleges will accept 2 or 3 applicants for your course so look in the colleges´ website to see how many they usually accept.
    By the way, everyone ends up loving their college and there is a possibility that they end up offering you a place at a college other than the one you applied for.
    I would advise you look at the websites of the colleges you think can be for you, go to an open day if possible or look at images
    Hope thsat helped
