The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world’s second oldest surviving university. While its exact founding date is unknown, there is evidence that teaching took place as far back as 1096. Located in and around Oxford’s medieval city centre, the university comprises 44 colleges and halls, and over 100 libraries, making it the largest library system in the UK.
Oxford's 12th Century establishment is often attributed to King Henry II's barring of English students from attending the University of Paris, with early classes being in theology, medicine and law.
Oxford academics are structured around the following divisions: Humanities, Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences, Medical Sciences and Social Sciences.
