Oxford is developing an exciting foundation year course. This will be offered to state school students from less advantaged areas and who have also experienced personal disadvantage or a severely disrupted education. Eligible students could include refugees, children in care or those who are themselves carers or estranged from their families. Those offered places will take part in a yearlong, bespoke subject-specific course at Oxford. All participants will be based at Oxford colleges, living and studying alongside other students. Those who pass the course will then progress to undergraduate study at Oxford. Once up and running, it is anticipated that the programme will support up to 50 students every year across selected subjects.
More details will appear here shortly, but in the meantime please read about Oxford's other exciting new access programme Opportunity Oxford.
