Colleges provide accommodation and social activities (such as sporting and arts activities) for students `at the University of Oxford. For graduates, they are not involved with the teaching of the course. They also provide pastoral and welfare support. More information about Colleges can be found in the Alternative prospectus. This is written by Oxford students mostly for undergraduate applicants but the information about Colleges is useful.  

All students accepted onto a course at the University of Oxford must also be accepted by a College. It may be difficult to decide which College to apply to, especially if you are unfamiliar with the collegiate University. The lists below only serve as guidance and should not be seen as a recommendation for making a particular College choice. We DO NOT recommend making a "No College/Open Preference" choice even if you have no particular preference.  If you do that, an allocation will be made on your behalf by the University Admissions team and you could end up in a College where there is no Neuroscience representative. Therefore we do do not recommend this option. If you are unsure, it is highly advisable to contact Dr Deborah Clarke for advice rather than make an open college choice. The College that you cite on your application form is your final choice so make sure your research Colleges thoroughly before adding your choice to your application. If your chosen college is not able to accept you then an alternative may be found, in this case by the Course Lecturer.
