The University of Oxford holds undergraduate study information sessions in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver each spring.
This annual tour aims to provide information, advice and guidance to college counsellors, students and parents about opportunities to study undergraduate programmes at the University of Oxford.
*Please note that sessions on this tour only include information on undergraduate study at the University of Oxford. Canadian students interested in postgraduate programmes at Oxford should see our further information on applying to graduate school.*
In 2017, we are running free open information sessions in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, each hosted by a local high school:
These sessions are intended for 9th, 10th and 11th grade students, their parents and college counsellors. They are free to attend. The sessions cover applying to university in the UK and Oxford specifically, entrance requirements, and how to make a competitive application.
The sessions are delivered by Dr Eleanor Parker, Student Recruitment Officer with special responsibility for North America. Dr Parker has worked in Higher Education in the UK for a number of years, both as a student recruitment professional and as Lecturer in Italian at numerous Oxford colleges, including her current role at St Anne's College, University of Oxford.
The University of Oxford
The University of Oxford is world-renowned for outstanding teaching and research. As the oldest English-speaking university in the world, Oxford has long attracted and recruited the brightest students to its beautiful city. Alumni include Lester B. Pearson, scientist Sir Stephen Hawking and author Philip Pullman.
We are a collegiate university, allowing students to be part of a close-knit academic and social community. International students from around 140 countries make up 17% of our undergraduate student body. One prestigious opportunity for students wishing to start a second undergraduate degree or Masters course is the Rhodes Scholarship. Each year, 11 Canadian citizens become Rhodes Scholars and take degree courses at Oxford University.
We offer a focused set of around 250 degree programmes in traditional academic areas. Details of these can be found in our undergraduate courses section. Course areas include arts, humanities, sciences and medicine.
Entrance to Oxford is exceedingly competitive and the academic entrance requirements for students studying in Canada can be found in our international qualifications section.
