Near you

We welcome the chance to talk with interested students about all aspects of applying to, and studying at, Oxford. Whether at large-scale events such as the Oxford and Cambridge Student Conferences or the UCAS Higher Education Fairs, or in smaller groups visiting your school or college, we aim to meet with any students considering an Oxford course.

School and college visits

The University of Oxford organises a range of events for potential applicants. Travelling throughout the UK, we meet with students, teachers, parents and carers. We welcome the chance to talk with interested students about all aspects of applying to, and studying at, Oxford. Where possible, we are keen to encourage schools and colleges to coordinate with other local schools and colleges because this enables us to work with more students over the year and, we believe, enriches students’ interaction.

For more details and to arrange a visit, please contact your link college.

UCAS HE Fairs

Our staff attend higher education fairs and conventions across the UK. They give face-to-face advice about applying to Oxford and tell you more about our undergraduate courses. To find out more about where you can meet an Oxford representative at a fair near you, please see our full UCAS HE Fairs listing.

Oxford and Cambridge Student Conferences

Held in March each year, these large-scale events are held across the UK to provide students and their teachers with a locally based opportunity to find out more about the two universities. For more information please see  www.studentconferences.org.uk.

Access Conferences

British African and Caribbean students

For high-performing year 12 students of African and Caribbean origin, we offer an annual access conference in London. This conference is delivered by the student-led African and Caribbean Society working in partnership with the University’s office for Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach. The conference aims to support students in making competitive applications to Oxford, and provides them with a platform to ask questions and engage with student role models of African and Caribbean origin who are currently studying here. It also assists teachers in providing advice and guidance to young people as they consider their options for Higher Education. The African and Caribbean Society also runs other workshops in London, and a shadowing scheme. For further information please contact the African and Caribbean Society at contact@annualaccessconference.co.uk.

British Pakistani and Bangladeshi students 

We are also introducing conferences for British students from Pakistani and Bangladeshi backgrounds. These conferences support students, their parents and teachers in their preparation for Higher Education. Selected schools will be invited to nominate students with the potential to apply to selective universities.

International Outreach

Oxford is an international university, and runs both events and web forums for prospective applicants all over the world. To find out more, please visit our international events section.
