Photographer's Note

All Souls' College has always fascinated me, not just because of its impressive architecture, but because it is the only Oxford college which does not have any students. Here's a brief summary I found on the internet:

All Souls is an oddity among Oxford colleges in that it has no students. Its members automatically become Fellows, i.e. academics who are full governing members of the College.

Every year, the top finalists of the University are invited to sit the examination for fellowship of the College. About two are elected to fellowship each year. Fellowship of All Souls is thus regarded as one of the highest academic honours in the United Kingdom. These Fellows are known as Prize Fellows, their term of office is seven years and roughly a dozen are at the college at any one time. Other categories of fellowship include Senior Research Fellows, Post-Doctoral Research Fellows, Fifty-Pound Fellows (open only to former Fellows no longer holding posts in Oxford) and Distinguished Fellows. There are also many Professorial Fellows who hold their fellowships by reason of their University post.

I took this shot from the University Church, from which one has panoramic views over the city.
