All Souls College is a constituent college of the University of Oxford in England.
Unique to All Souls, all of its members automatically become Fellows . It has no undergraduate members, but each year recent graduate and postgraduate students at Oxford are eligible to apply for Examination Fellowships through a competitive examination and, for the several shortlisted after the examinations, an interview.
All Souls is one of the wealthiest colleges in Oxford, with a financial endowment of £286.4 million . However, since the college's principal source of revenue is its endowment, it only ranks nineteenth among Oxford colleges with respect to total income. All Souls is a registered charity under English law.
The college is located on the north side of the High Street adjoining Radcliffe Square to the west. To the east is The Queen's College with Hertford College to the North.
The current warden is Sir John Vickers, a graduate of Oriel College, Oxford.
