International applicants

International students play an important part in Jesus College life and make up around one third of our student population. Over half of our postgraduate students are from countries outside of the UK.

Jesus College welcomes graduate students from all over the world, and with around thirty nationalities usually represented, the student community here is diverse and lively! There are many clubs and societies, both in College and the University, for international students and we aim to create a home-from-home environment in which you can enjoy and benefit from all the University has to offer.

Below are some useful tips to help with your move to Oxford:

  • Remember to open a pounds sterling bank account early – before the start of term if possible. You can use your College offer letter to show your student status.
  • Bring a few smart clothes for various dinners and functions throughout the year. Dinners organised by the College will require smart dress such as suits for men.
  • Check the University’s Dates of Term but please note that you will need to arrive by 5 pm on the Thursday before the start of term in Hilary (spring) and Trinity (summer) terms. For the Michaelmas (autumn) term, the arrival dates for new students are a few days earlier still – we will let you know the date for your year in your welcome pack, or email the Admissions Officer if you want to know sooner so that you can book the right flights. For graduates, many want to stay for a week after the end of term to go to the popular termly Graduate Dinner in Hall, organised by the Graduate Common Room Committee.

Please note, as we are on a small historic site, there is very little storage in College for possessions during the vacations.
