Hertford College’s academic excellence is framed by our deep commitment to fairness and opportunity.
Our academics are world leaders in their fields, committed to both teaching and research, and the shared sense of community between our staff and students ensures that Hertford is a popular and successful home for graduates and undergraduates alike.
The collective intellectual project of challenging and questioning unites all our disciplines: the college of the poet John Donne is also a crucible of the early Royal Society. Today, we equip our students with that same capacity to ask difficult questions, to live well and to assist others to do the same. Our priority is to further invest in our people, through student bursaries, academic fellowships and graduate scholarships. We’re proud of our past members and all they have achieved; we look to their example to guide us in welcoming, supporting and inspiring the Hertfordians of the future.
