University of Oxford Outreach and Your Data

The University of Oxford’s colleges and departments carry out a wide range of outreach activities across the United Kingdom.  Through these activities we seek to inform and equip participants to make informed decisions about their future education and to make competitive applications to university.

To help determine whether our activities are helping participants move on from school into further education, higher education and employment it is important that we collect information about the students who take part in them.

We use the the Higher Education Access Tracker (HEAT) service and database ( to record information about our outreach activities and the students who take part in these activities.  HEAT gives us the ability to track the educational journey of our outreach participants into university and beyond into employment.  To find out more about how HEAT does this please go to  

The data we collect is used to monitor, evaluate and improve our outreach activities and is never sold to any third party organisations.  To find out all the specific details of how data stored in HEAT is used please download the privacy notice from the right side of this page.
