Kellogg stands out among the colleges of the University of Oxford.

It was established in 1990 with a mission to make graduate study more open and accessible. It offered part-time study options that were more compatible with career progression outside academia, and recognised the personal commitments of family life.

This simple concept was ground breaking at the time, but is now part of the fabric of the University of Oxford. Kellogg continues to innovate, and is committed to making lifelong learning available for the professional and personal development of its students, and the betterment of society.

With people ranging from their 20s to 70s and beyond, members of College represent around 100 nationalities, and form an egalitarian and inclusive community which is perhaps the friendliest and most distinctive in Oxford.

Kellogg has grown remarkably since its foundation in 1990. It is now the most international college of the University of Oxford.

The University is fully committed to widening participation for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. As demand for part-time study provision continues to grow, Kellogg leads the way, hosting around half of all registered part-time degree students. The College sustains its commitment to lifelong learning, and supports the University’s own strategies for continuing education, part-time study and distance learning.

Kellogg continues its journey towards ultimate chartered status as an independent College of the University.
