Graduate Admissions

We have a diverse, international graduate community made up of some 150 students studying at Masters or DPhil level.

Our lively graduate community enjoy Wadham's informal, relaxed atmosphere and the academic and social facilities found within our McCall MacBain Graduate Centre.

The MCR (Middle Common Room)

While the SU represents all students, our MCR committee caters for the specific needs of graduate students.

The MCR is a thriving community with the McCall MacBain Graduate Centre at its heart.  This modern space was purpose-built on the main College site in 2012 and is available for graduate study, seminars, socialising and other events.  Boasting a library, common room, kitchen with coffee machine, media room (with 65 inch 3D TV) and bar, this is one of the best-equipped graduate spaces in Oxford.  Fully furnished with sofas, armchairs, chairs and desks, it is the perfect place for a gathering of friends, but big enough to find a quiet spot for study.

Each year, an MCR Committee is elected to represent the opinions and needs of the graduate community in the College and in the University. Graduate students are also members of the Students’ Union and the MCR President attends various College meetings, including meetings of the College’s Governing Body, to put forward student-led proposals or represent the views of the graduate community.

The MCR also organises regular parties, cultural events and guest dinners and encourages all MCR members to get involved.
