Higher Education Fairs

Our staff attend higher education fairs and conventions across the UK. They give face-to-face advice about applying to Oxford and tell you more about our undergraduate courses.

COVID-19 update

Following guidance issued by the government, UCAS has taken the decision to postpone all higher education exhibitions due to take place before the beginning of July.

UCAS are currently looking at a number of alternative options to ensure anyone interested in full-time higher education or higher or degree apprenticeships, is able to access the invaluable advice UCAS, universities, colleges, and employers can offer – including running some of the events in the autumn term, and delivering advice sessions through a digital solution. The University of Oxford will do all it can to support UCAS in delivering this goal.

In the meantime, the University of Oxford is strongly committed to making sure you have plenty of alternative online opportunities to discover Oxford and all that it has to offer you. We are busy developing these resources at the moment and look forward to sharing them soon.

Anyone thinking of applying to Oxford this October, should sign up for the latest news on developments in undergraduate admissions and outreach. Our admissions timeline will also give you a useful overview of the steps involved in making an application. Course choice is the most important decision you need to make when considering university and our top tip is to start exploring your options through our course pages.

We wish you and your family well during these difficult times and look forward to welcoming you on a visit to Oxford soon.

Please go to the UCAS website for more information and to book onto a UCAS HE Exhibition.

Please go to the UK University Search website for more information and to book onto a UK University Search event.

If your school or college is holding an event like this, and you would like someone from Oxford to attend, please let us know by emailing outreach@admin.ox.ac.uk.
