Why Choose Kellogg College?
Kellogg College is a vibrant and egalitarian graduate college at the University of Oxford, with modern facilities and a mature and friendly atmosphere. Fellows and students study and work alongside each other in a rigorously academic environment. The student experience that we provide at Kellogg contrasts with many of the traditional Oxford colleges, resulting in a tailor-made community for graduates and academics from all over the world. Our values and aims are clearly outlined in our Academic Vision for Kellogg College.
Part-time study at the University of Oxford
We are the University’s leading college for students reading for post-graduate degrees on a part-time basis. In addition, we have a dynamic community of full-time students who enjoy a lively college environment whilst studying alongside part-time students who work in a variety of professions in a range of industries. We pride ourselves on the expertise that we have developed, since our foundation in 1990, to facilitate and enhance the collegiate experience of both part-time and full-time graduate students.
Inclusive and egalitarian
Students, fellows and all other College members are equal at Kellogg College. There is no high-table in our dining hall; all College members sit and eat together at all meals whether a formal dinner or at lunch. This means that all our students and Fellows meet each other in an open environment, fostering contacts and intellectual exchange with academics over a range of subject areas.
Our students are from all backgrounds and ages, and there is good provision for students with families, and for those with physical disabilities. We have students from over ninety countries, so you will be part of a truly global community.
Location and facilities
Kellogg is situated in the leafy neighbourhood of North Oxford, on the Banbury Road. We have our own site which consists of Victorian houses and walled gardens, providing a tranquil studying environment in the hustle and bustle of the city of Oxford. We are a short walk from the city centre and are close to Jericho, an area of Oxford enjoyed by many for its cafés and local shops.
College accommodation is located on site in refurbished Victorian buildings, which overlook the College gardens. Each year we offer a number of University-owned rooms elsewhere in Oxford, which are an easy walk from College. We expect to be able to accommodate most Freshers who wish to reside in accommodation arranged by College for the academic year 2017/18.
Social life and events
Frequent events are hosted to suit all ages and interests including concerts, seminars and talks, a book club, and the extremely popular annual Burns Night Ceilidh.
Resources and facilities are available for those who may wish to host their own events. The College bar is a relaxed and welcoming environment where you can meet fellow College members in the day-time for a coffee and a chat, or after work for drinks and discussion.
