Founded in 1886, a modern college by Oxford’s standards, St Hugh’s has a rich history which has formed its current character as a progressive college, dedicated to academic endeavour.

St Hugh’s welcomes applications from candidates wishing to read Experimental Psychology or PPL (Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics). Students wishing to read PPL may study any two of the three subjects.

Any A-level or equivalent subjects are acceptable, but Mathematics and a science are recommended for Psychology. A lively interest in the sciences is assumed in candidates for Physiology, who are normally expected to have shown ability in more than one of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.
