US and Canada

The University of Oxford is currently home to more than 200 full-degree undergraduates from North America. We seek to recruit the most academically gifted students from the region.

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 have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and many different countries.

Our activity in your area

The Student Recruitment Team visit North America annually to provide 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 sessions and attending college fairs.

Most Popular Questions 

Can I still apply if I do not know my grades?

Most candidates who apply to Oxford do so during their last year at school or college, before they have completed their final examinations or tests, so it is absolutely fine to apply before you have your final results

We are aware that some candidates taking US qualifications have had their exams cancelled due to COVID-19 and haven’t been awarded any qualifications, and neither will they be able to sit these exams before our 15 October application deadline. If you are in this position, please be aware that you can still apply to Oxford following the advice linked above.
