1. University of Oxford
One of the most prestigious universities in the world, and one of the oldest, the University of Oxford attracts top scholars and students to its 44 colleges and halls. Entry standards are high and admissions are competitive; in 2015 there were 18,000 undergraduate applications for only 3,200 places, and 24,000 postgraduate applications for 5,200 places.
As is common in the UK, the university offers a number of joint honours programmes that combine two subjects at an undergraduate level. In total, there are 250 different undergraduate degree combinations. The combination of politics, philosophy and economics is a particularly prestigious degree course on offer, although it is not now unique to the University of Oxford.
