At Oxford, UK, there is a coeducational research institution called the University of Oxford. It is the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the second-oldest institution still in existence, with traces of instruction dating back to 1096. When Henry II forbade English students from enrolling at the University of Paris in 1167, it has expanded quickly.

Several professors migrated north-east to Cambridge in 1209 after tensions between students and Oxford town residents, where they founded what would become the University of Cambridge. The two historic English institutions, together referred to as Oxbridge, have many things in common.

The university is made up of a variety of academic departments divided into four divisions, 39 semi-autonomous constituent colleges, five permanent private halls, and more.  All of the colleges are autonomous organisations within the university, each of which manages its own student body and has its own internal organisation and activities. Every student belongs to a college.

Its structures and amenities are dispersed around the city centre and it lacks a primary campus. Lectures, small-group tutorials in the colleges and residences, seminars, laboratory work, and sometimes additional tutorials offered by the core university faculties and departments make up the majority of the undergraduate curriculum at Oxford. The majority of postgraduate instruction is delivered centrally.

The biggest university press in the world, the oldest university museum in the world, and the largest academic library network in the country are all run by Oxford. The university earned £2.45 billion overall in revenue for the fiscal year that ended on July 31, 2019, of which £624.8 million came from grants and contracts for research.

Many noteworthy graduates from Oxford include 30 British prime ministers and other leaders of state and governments from throughout the globe. As of October 2022, the University of Oxford has produced 73 Nobel Prize winners, four Fields Medalists, and six Turing Award winners, as well as alumni who have won 160 Olympic medals. The Rhodes Scholarship, one of the first international graduate scholarship programmes, is one of the many scholarships offered at Oxford.
