Have your say about the graduate admissions process

Are you involved with graduate admissions, or with related processes such as scholarship competitions and accommodation?

Do you have ideas about how the process can be improved?

Graduate students represent almost 50% of the student population. Given the international competition to attract the best students and the growing number of applicants for graduate study each year, it is more important than ever that the University operates an effective and efficient graduate admissions process.

The Graduate Admissions Challenge is an opportunity for those involved with the graduate admissions process and any associated processes across the collegiate University to improve what we do and how we do it. This initiative is part of the Focus Programme, a broad programme of activity to improve the way in which support services are delivered.

Suggestions are being invited about all aspects of the graduate admissions process – big and small. In particular, ideas are being sought which:

  • Improve the applicant experience, particularly by reducing delay, complexity and uncertainty during the admissions process
  • Contribute to a faster and simpler process overall
  • Improve the admissions process for academic assessors
  • Promote a joined-up process across the University and colleges

To put forward suggestions, visit the Graduate Admissions Challenge page on the Oxford Ideas online platform.

The Challenge is open until 15 July
