"Great environment for research"

Star Star Star Star Star

Pros

Faculty members are world class, with research work well supported by industry and government grants.

Cons

Graduate student support is limited. Libraries (atleast for engineering and the sciencies) are crummy. The collegiate system is designed to support undergraduates -- while academic terms and the concomitant social buzz lasts for 6 months a year, a PhD cannot help but feel isolated the rest of the way.

    Pros

    Enjoy the life at Oxford is a one-time-in-a-life experience. The spirit energised in academic/research work often makes you feel so previliged to work there

    Cons

    It's lack of mordern facilicities, but for a 900 year old univ/city, what can you complaint for? However look out for the slow pace of life since it may well kill your ambition slowly...

    Pros

    Location - Oxford is a great city specially if you like Science and Academia in general as there is plenty with free talk by very important lectures every so often.
    Salary - for a being a non-profit organization the pay is good. For many positions, University of Oxford staff get better salaries than in other other university in the UK including London based institutions and the increased cost of life there.
    Flexibility - as for most non-profit organization in the UK you have flexible hours and home-work when necessary.

    Cons

    You still probably would get pay better in a company, but the pay is nonetheless good.
