Today, Oxford is a modern, research-driven university. Our prowess in the sciences is particularly noteworthy: we have been ranked number one in the world for medicine for two years running by the Times Higher Education Supplement (2011-12 and 2012-13). Oxford is also ranked in the top ten globally in life sciences, physical sciences, social sciences and the arts and humanities. These pages share some of the highlights of that story. Globalization is nothing new at Oxford: we welcomed our first international student - Emo of Friesland - in 1190. The pace of globalization has accelerated in recent decades, and Oxford now has a strong international character and a presence around the world unlike that of any other university.
