Oxford is a collegiate university, consisting of the central University and colleges. The central University is composed of academic departments and research centres, administrative departments, libraries and museums. The 38 colleges are self-governing and financially independent institutions, which are related to the central University in a federal system. There are also six permanent private halls, which were founded by different Christian denominations and which still retain their Christian character. The University Determines the content of the courses within which college teaching takes place. Organises lectures, seminars and lab work. Provides a wide range of resources for teaching and learning in the form of libraries, laboratories, museums, computing facilities, and so on. Provides administrative services and centrally managed student services such as counselling and careers. Admits and supervises graduate students, and examines theses. Sets and marks examinations, and awards degrees. The collegiate system is at the heart of the University’s success, giving students and academics the benefits of belonging both to a large, internationally renowned institution and to a small, interdisciplinary academic community. It brings together leading academics and students across subjects and year groups and from different cultures and countries, helping to foster the intense interdisciplinary approach that inspires much of the outstanding research achievement of the University and makes Oxford a leader in so many fields. The University’s International Profile Globalisation is nothing new at Oxford: we welcomed our first international student - Emo of Friesland - in 1190. The pace of globalisation has accelerated in recent decades, and Oxford now has a strong international character and a presence around the world unlike that of any other university.  Today more than a third of our students and more than forty percent of our academic staff hail from countries outside the United Kingdom. Oxford is at the forefront in studying topics of worldwide interest, from the dawn of the universe to the challenges of globalisation. Oxford academics have built untold numbers of research collaborations with international partners. Our Tropical Medicine laboratories are probably the most substantial overseas research presence of any university, employing some 1,500 staff in Asia and Africa to increase our understanding of how to treat tropical infectious diseases. Oxford has defined the English language for many people around the world through the dictionaries and other books of Oxford University Press (OUP). OUP is the world’s largest university press, with a presence in 50 countries. Our international alumni are 60,000 strong and spread across almost every country on earth. Today’s Oxford students, whether British or international, also enjoy access to a range of international experiences while studying here, including internships around the world, courses with study abroad components, and substantial support from the collegiate university for independent research abroad.     Oxford aims to deliver an exceptional education, to carry out world-leading research, and to make significant contributions to society - locally, nationally, and internationally. Our extensive and ever-expanding global links have been developed to serve these principles.
