We know that supporting an Oxford application means more work for teachers. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to recommend Oxford to your best students. Our dedicated events for teachers are designed to help you to help your most able students. We host many different outreach events specifically for our colleagues in secondary and further education, and most of these are completely free of charge.

For international teachers and guidance counsellors
Open sessions on varied and topical themes run the first Wednesday of every month for international counsellors and teachers. Sessions also provide an opportunity to ask our international team any questions you have. We encourage you to drop by as often as you can, and offer two time-slots per month according to your time zone. Please note that we can only accept bookings from counsellors employed directly by schools.
