There are so many great things to say about Oxford, from its incredibly generous bursaries, to the world-renowned tutorial system, to the plethora of libraries. The city is picturesque and beautiful, whether it is snowy or sunny weather, and full of discounts for students eager for a cheap lunch or a good bargain. The collegiate system is an intimate, personalised learning experience. Best thought of as dorms, colleges are where you eat, sleep and socialise! They all have their own balls and quirks, which are great fun. It is a practically unrivaled life and educational experience.
