Oxford for East England

At the University of Oxford, we have a long history of working with schools and students from across the East of England. Oxford for East England is a new collaborative approach to improve how the University collaborates with these schools and to encourage more students from the East of England to make successful applications to Oxford and other top UK universities.

Oxford for East England brings together three Oxford colleges with established links in the region: Balliol, Hertford and Wadham. Together, we work with pupils, teachers and families to provide bespoke support where it’s needed - from helping raise attainment to offering professional advice about applying to university - as well as innovative online resources.

The local authorities supported by Oxford for East England are: Bedford, Cambridgeshire, Central Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Luton, Norfolk, Peterborough, Southend-on-Sea, Suffolk and Thurrock.

Oxford Open Days

One of the best ways to decide if Oxford might be right for you is to come to our  upcoming University Open Day, which this year is taking place on Friday 15 September. Come and look round our beautiful university city, chat to staff and students and discover for yourself what life here is like. Explore all the information you need to plan your day on our Open Days pages. You will also find advice on travel and accommodation as well as details of the events being run by colleges and departments. We hope to see you there!
