An Open Day at Oriel College.

For Students

If you are nearing the end of your school education 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 West Midlands can provide you with the information and support you need to make informed decisions about your future. Our programmes are designed to support you at whatever stage you are in school:

  • For students aged 11 to 16, we focus on providing the information you need to make informed decisions about GCSE and A-Level choices.
  • For students aged 16 to 18, we shift the focus to 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.
