    Hi!
    I am looking for advises regarding Oxford colleges to study HisPol considering:
    Number of students taking the subject
    Number/quality of tutours
    Good spirit of debate
    Location (central)
    Rooms
    Food
    Sports
    Friendly environment
    Other facilities

    I was looking at Balliol, New, Merton Pembroke and Worcester. I have checked all online information, including in this site, what I am really looking for is advises given by those studying or that have studied in Oxford.
    Any suggestion is welcome, even other college sugestion.
    Thank you!

    First of all, well done for making college choices based on the right reasons. Too many people try to choose colleges as part of a strategy to get an offer.

    Are you applying for 2018 entry? If you are then see the below methods for finding the information you're looking for.
    If you're applying for next year or later, then going and visiting is your best option. Get a sense of the atmosphere of the place.:yep:

    Okay, so google maps should help you with location.
    Statistics for number of students on your course (although it will vary each year) should be available online.

    "spirit of debate" and "friendly environment" are subjective concepts.

    Hope that helps.:hat2:

    Ahahahah... thank you for your reply! I am applying for 2018.I have done all of what you sugested, I think I will go for Balliol but I really like the others as well, thus I am afraid Balliol will be very hard to get in... and I like the location of New, half way from both departments but doesn't provide rooms for all years and doesn't have a storeroom for the end of terms.
