Asia | University of Oxford


The University of Oxford is currently home to more than 660 full-degree undergraduates from the Far East. We seek to recruit the most academically gifted students and welcome students from over 150 different countries.

Our students receive an intensive education, including our distinctive tutorials, and are taught by academic leaders in their field. Colleges provide multidisciplinary communities within which students are supported and intellectually challenged, and where they have the opportunity to meet with students from all walks of life.

Our activity in your area

The student recruitment activity in the Far East takes place during April and October and provides information, advice and guidance to students, parents and counsellors wishing to find out more about studying at our institution. Our activity in the region centres around delivering dedicated information to schools and colleges about applying to and studying at the University of Oxford.

When available, we may also be able to make individual appointments or Skype presentations.

The Student Recruitment Team run webinars for teachers and guidance counsellors throughout the year. We do not currently have any webinars scheduled, however if you would like to be notified of any upcoming webinars or other international events please sign up to our international teacher and guidance counsellor mailing list here.
