President's Welcome to Magdalen
Welcome to the Magdalen College website.
The College was founded in 1458 by William Waynflete. Our rich history gives us many traditions but we also have pride in our modern and progressive outlook.
The top priority of Magdalen College is academic excellence and applications are encouraged from all students with outstanding academic potential, irrespective of background or country of origin.
We are committed to the tutorial system as a supportive and intellectually challenging method for undergraduate teaching. We are proud of the achievements of our alumni, including nine Nobel Laureates, and of the top level research being carried out by our Fellows and graduate students.
Magdalen has excellent facilities and beautiful grounds, and we offer extensive accommodation of a high standard to students. We have a superb choir and participation by our students in extra-curricular activities is strongly encouraged.
Many activities are organised for our alumni and we are very keen to keep in touch with all members and friends of the College.
