What are the Regional Teacher Conferences?

The University organises free CPD accredited Regional Teachers’ Conferences.

Organised by Oxford’s Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach office, the conferences aim to equip teachers with the best possible advice for their students on applying to Oxford and to break down any misconceptions that might deter students from applying to the University.

Sessions are led by academic tutors and central admissions staff, all with extensive first-hand knowledge of the admissions process. Current undergraduate students will also be there to talk about their personal experiences of applying.

The programme for the conferences covers all aspects of the admissions process from identifying candidates to writing references and preparing candidates for admissions tests and interviews. The programme will include a mock interview session in which tutors and students demonstrate the kind of questions applicants face in interviews.

The draft programme is available to view here.
