    For 2008 entry -
    LMH 34
    St Anne's 37
    Somerville 36
    Wadham 32
    St Hilda's 34
    St Edmund Hall 30

    All others less than 30

    This is the TOTAL number studying English at each college (ie across all 3 years) so divide by 3 and you've got a rough idea!

    Figures are from last year's prospectus.

    Although it's interesting information, don't use it as your main way of choosing a college.

    From the prospectus: Christ Church, LMH, St Anne's, Teddy Hall, St Hilda's, St Hugh's, Somerville and Wadham had the most English undergrads a couple of years ago (though that doesn't necessarily correspond with the number of places because of people missing offers, etc.) Look at the pages for English on colleges' own websites to see the number of places (e.g. Wadham has 12, ChCh 10).

    Edit: Listen to the above person, they have a more up-to-date prospectus than me!

    The former women's colleges generally accept most. Keep in mind, though, that we're talking about relatively minor differences here. A college with a "large" annual intake will accept something like 10 students (maybe 12 if you count joint schools), whereas a college with an "average" intake will accept closer to 6 - but at the end of the day, the difference is just four people. It won't affect the size of your tutorial groups or anything like that, and most of your friends will probably be doing other subjects anyway.
