The College was founded in 1571 by Queen Elizabeth I, at the request of a Welsh Lawyer and Clergyman, Hugh Price. It combines academic excellence in teaching and research with an informal, vibrant, and supportive community. We currently have 340 undergraduates, 190 graduates, 68 Fellows and 20 College lecturers.
Our students as well as our tutors come from a very wide range of backgrounds and cultures. We select our students on achievement and potential, with a higher than average proportion of state school undergraduates.
