If you are nearing the end of your schooling and are thinking about your next steps, our outreach programmes offer the chance to experience life as a university student, as well as providing expert advice on university admissions. We believe that a degree opens doors and is life changing for many people, but we also know that deciding where or whether to go to university is not always easy, particularly if you don't know people who have been, or who can tell you what it's like.
Oxford for North East can provide you with the information and support you need to make informed decisions about your future. We mainly work with students aged 16 to 18, providing information about university admissions, helping you to explore what Oxford has to offer and developing the skills necessary to make successful applications to Oxford. We also work with students aged 11 to 16, providing the information you need to make informed decisions about GCSE and A-Level choices. Find out more below about the activities we run in your region, in Oxford and online.

"During the interviews themselves don't worry about answering straight away; take your time, speak through your thought process, and don't be afraid to ask questions or say that you're not sure about something. There will be a point where you don't know the answer (the tutors interviewing you know far more than you), so don't worry when this happens!" Wise advice from Katheryn, one of our Classics and English students - our tutors want to see how you think, not just what you know so don't be afraid to think out loud and engage with their questions #studyatoxford #oxforduniversity #oxforduni #oxford #igersoxford #goingtooxford #thisisoxford⠀
