Regional Teachers' Conferences

Dates for the 2017 Regional Teachers' Conferences will be announced in early 2017.

The University organises several free Regional Teachers’ Conferences across the UK in June and July each year. The aims of the conferences are to equip teachers with the best possible advice for their students on applying to Oxford and to break down any misconceptions that might deter students from applying to the University. The programme for the conferences covers all aspects of the admissions process from identifying candidates to writing references and preparing candidates for admissions tests and interviews.

The conferences are organised by Oxford’s Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach office, and sessions are led by academic tutors and central admissions staff, all with extensive first-hand knowledge of the admissions process. Also in attendance are current undergraduate students who are able to talk about their own experiences of applying. The programme will include a mock interview session in which tutors and students demonstrate the kind of questions applicants face in interviews. There is no charge for these events.

An example conference programme is available to view online.

Dates for the 2017 Regional Teachers' Conferences will be announced in early 2017. To receive notification of upcoming teachers' events please sign up to our teachers e-newsletter.
