Saudi Arabia

Last year 72 students from Saudi Arabia were studying at Oxford Brookes and enjoying a fun and inspiring experience that will benefit them throughout their life and career. Popular subjects for students from Saudi Arabia include business (including research), marketing, education, law, computing, engineering, health and social care management, sport and health sciences, public health, psychology, and architecture.

We work closely with the Saudi Ministry of Education and feature on their list of approved universities.

Many of our Saudi students like that Oxford is the right size to offer all the shopping, entertainment and cultural facilities you enjoy while being quieter and safer than larger cities like Birmingham and London. We are also just one hour from London if you ever need a big-city experience.

We offer outstanding academic and personal support with everything from perfecting your essays and improving your English during your degree, to help with personal health, banking and visas and much much more. All this will help you reach your potential, achieve success and graduate with a degree you can be proud of.

Information in Arabic (العربية)

We offer pathways courses to meet the English or academic requirements for a bachelor's or master's degree. Download our Arabic fact sheets (PDFs) for more information including dates, fees and the degrees you can study afterwards.

We welcome students from all religions and have a special Muslim Student Guide (Arabic) or Muslim Student Guide (English) with information about the Muslim community here in Oxford and at the university.
