Prospective Students

back-of-mainSt. Hugh’s is one of 39 colleges that make up the University of Oxford. By these standards it is relatively young, having been founded ‘only’ a little over a century ago in 1886 by Elizabeth Wordsworth, the great niece of the poet. Great emphasis is not placed on the gowns, mortar boards and formal halls that frequently stereotype Oxford, and St. Hugh’s is often seen as a forward-looking college in many respects. Undergraduates at St. Hugh’s come from a rich variety of backgrounds, schools, regions, and countries and the college welcomes applications from students from a wide range of experience from all over the world.
