Academic life

St John's has a thriving academic community, with a large number of Research Fellows based at the College.

We're recognised for our research, we're known for supporting students, financially and otherwise, and there's a busy schedule of clubs, activities and social life.

There's also a wide range of facilities and services available to Fellows, staff and students, including a library that is open for members to use 24 hours a day.
