Most Popular Questions

Who do I contact to for feedback on my application or to discuss my offer?

You can request feedback on your application by writing to the college you applied to, or were allocated to. Please note that data protection legislation means we cannot discuss applications with third parties. If you have a question regarding your offer, you should contact the college who has offered you a place, or who is underwriting your open offer. College contact details can be found on our college pages.

What subjects should I take to A-level (or equivalent)?

Any specific subject requirements are listed on our individual course pages and in this summary table of entrance requirements.

Are my GCSEs good enough for Oxford?

GCSEs will be taken into account when we consider your application but they are just one aspect that we look at. Tutors will also consider your achieved or predicted grades at A-level (or other equivalent qualifications), your personal statement, academic reference, and any written work or written tests required for your course. If your application is shortlisted, your performance at interview will also be taken in to account. Further information about how we consider GCSEs in context is available on our UK qualifications page.

What grades do I need to make a competitive application to Oxford?

The exact subject requirements vary depending on the course you want to apply for. As a guide, you will need to achieve between AAA and A*A*A at A-level or an equivalent level qualification. Read our course pages to find out the specific requirements for each.

When can I visit Oxford University?

Our next University-wide Open Day will be in 2019 but you are welcome to make an independent visit. Other opportunities to attend events and find out more about studying at Oxford are listed in our events calendar.

UCAS applications and admissions test registrations for entry here in 2019 are now closed. Applications for entry in 2020 can be submitted from early September 2019.  See Applying to Oxford for comprehensive information and advice on how to put in a competitive application.
