Welcome to All Souls College
The College is primarily an academic research institution with particular strengths in the humanities and social and theoretical sciences and an outstanding library. It also has strong ties to public life. Although its Fellows are involved in teaching and supervision of research, there are no undergraduate members.
About All Souls
As of January 2024 there are eighty six Fellows of All Souls, three Honorary Fellows, eighteen Visiting Fellows and thirty Emeritus (i.e. retired academic) Fellows, whose continuing research the College actively supports. Of the current Fellows, forty-five are academics entirely funded by All Souls (as Senior Research Fellows, Post-Doctoral Fellows, and Examination Fellows), eighteen are academics with Oxford University positions attached to All Souls, and the rest include academics at other universities, non-academics (e.g. barristers), former Fellows who have attained distinction in public life, and the College Chaplain, Fellow Librarian, and Bursars.
