The University of Oxford has officially set out its plans for a new graduate college, which is expected to start admitting students from 2020.

On 7 December, the university confirmed that its college—which is yet to be named—will start recruiting 200 graduate students for a September 2020 start. Although most students will have a background in mathematics, physics and life sciences, interdisciplinary learning and research will be encouraged, Oxford said in a statement. The college will have a special focus on artificial intelligence, machine learning and environmental change, it said. 

“Outstanding graduate education which deepens the connection between students and their supervisors, promotion of interdisciplinary exchanges, imaginative public engagement, and access to the Bodleian Library’s world-renowned scientific collections and the Bodleian Libraries and University museums exhibitions will be essential elements of the college’s ethos,” the statement said.
