The history director of studies visited my school when I was applying to uni and he was really friendly, engaging and helpful and gave me the impression that lady margaret hall is a good place to do history at Oxford.

Great social life and beautiful gardens (and buildings) to relax in during the summer term (and for your room to over look in the winter). Best bar in Oxford which opens on to the gardens. Very friendly student population. Not too pressurised academically. Excellent facilities (football pitch, 3 tennis courts, theatre, punts, music rooms... ). Accommodation - lots of en-suite bathrooms and spacious rooms. Space to be accommodated all three years.

A bit further out of town but 3mins on a bike (5-10mins on foot) to anywhere in the centre.

Review by Undisclosed - ex oxford student (August 13, 2012) - add your impression

So it's a few minutes further out than most colleges - ten minutes out by foot or five if you've got a bike (always very useful in oxford anyway - lets you stay in bed for those critical extra moments). But this means that there's not the usual deluge of tourists poking around the place. Not to say that it isn't in amazing grounds though - they are great for roaming about and having pimms (backing onto the Cherwell)!

I know people always say this about their college, but I think we are really unique in our makeup - it's a point of great pride to the college that we have equal numbers of men and women and state and private school students... Social life is really good and inclusive - there are also lots of sports to get involved with (we have our own gym, and combined tennis, netball and basketball courts)..
