This page shows the number of UK-domiciled students applying to, receiving offers from and admitted to Oxford by the type of school they attended: state or independent.
UK-domiciled students applying from other types of school have been excluded from the tables below. This is because the group is small, constituting only 4.4% of applications (1,884) between 2019 and 2021, and includes students from overseas or unknown schools, making it difficult to draw reliable conclusions from the numbers.
- The proportion of students admitted to Oxford from the UK state sector fell in 2021 following the exceptional intake in 2020 but remains higher than in all previous years since the University began recording detailed admissions statistics.
- The proportion of UK students admitted from the independent sector has decreased between 2017 and 2021.
