Link colleges

In order to make it easier for you to establish a first point of contact with our University, every Oxford college is ‘linked’ to a particular region of the UK. The ‘link’ college will know their region particularly well and already have contact with schools and students in the area.

Over the coming months, groups of Oxford colleges will be gradually combining forces to launch Oxford for UK, a nationwide community outreach programme offering bespoke and local support to students of mixed ages, their parents and teachers. This will include events in your region, in Oxford and online - so there will be something for everyone - wherever they may be. Oxford for North East and Oxford for East Midlands have recently launched, and will be followed shortly by Oxford for North West. In the meantime, colleges will continue to maintain their links with their existing regions.

Getting in touch with the college linked to your region has no influence on your chances of being accepted to this or any other particular college. You are also very welcome to get in touch with any other college for advice about applying or studying here.

You can find your link college below or through our college pages. If you are a teacher or guidance counsellor and are unable to contact them, please contact the central outreach delivery team:
