Undergraduate admissions and outreach | University of Oxford

Circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic mean that there will be some changes to our admissions process this year, including interviews being organised remotely. If you have submitted an application by 15 October and are a current applicant, make sure you stay up to date by reading the Admissions News section to the right of this page. 

In line with Government guidance on social distancing, outreach events are not currently taking place as planned. This includes our University-wide Open Days which ran this year as virtual open days. We remain strongly committed to providing opportunities for you to discover what it is like to study at Oxford and in the meantime would encourage you to explore our website, including the Increasing Access section. Please do everything you can to stay well and we hope to welcome you and your family on a visit to Oxford before too long. 

Most Popular Questions 

Where can I find the University's latest advice on COVID-19?   

Up-to-date information on our response to COVID-19 is available on our website.  

When are the interviews?

Admissions interviews take place in December and in 2020 these will take place online. If you are hoping to be shortlisted, please look at the interview timetable and make sure you know when the online interviews for your subject are expected to take place. There is lots of advice on interviews, including sample questions and how online interviews will work, in our online guide for applicants.

When will I hear if I am invited to interview?

You will be told whether or not you have been invited to an online interview at least one week before the interviews for your subject take place. All interviews take place in December and will run to the following interview timetable.  Further guidance on interviews can be found in our guide for applicants. 

When will I hear about my Admissions Test results?

Further information about how to access BMAT, TSA, ELAT and LNAT results can be found on Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing’s website or on the test webpage.

Although tutors will use any test results to help inform their shortlisting decisions, candidates who sat the CAT, MLAT, OLAT, PAT and HAT do not routinely receive their results. After all decisions have been made in mid-January, results can be requested as part of our feedback process.

MAT scores will be automatically distributed to all applicants shortly after college decision letters are sent.
