Why do I have to complete an application?

We aim to create and maintain a diverse and balanced academic community. To achieve this we look for applicants from a range of academic disciplines and nationalities and we assess your potential contribution to College life through a selective competitive application process.

We ask for a personal statement which outlines what you might be able to bring and contribute to the richly diverse community here at Goodenough College, so that everyone has an enriching and unique experience. Please read through our Accommodation and Student Life information before you apply.

What happens after I have made my application?

We will acknowledge your application upon receipt and will only consider applications with all of the supporting documentation.

We will let you know the outcome of your application the month following submission.

We offer tours of the College on the first Saturday of every month from June-September
