Arrangements for the 2020/21 academic year

Oxford University and its Colleges plan to open to students at all levels for the 2020/21 academic year and we look forward to welcoming all new and continuing students from the start of the Michaelmas term.

The health and safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. We will have a range of measures in place including a dedicated testing service, support for students needing to self-isolate, and clear guidance informed by scientific advice.

Our education will be built around Oxford’s distinctive focus on face to face small-group teaching, laboratory practical work and supervision, with access to world-class facilities and resources, supplemented by high quality digital materials. We will work flexibly to maintain suitable levels of contact time for students.

Colleges are at the heart of the Oxford experience. We are pleased to be able to confirm that all our colleges will be open, with accommodation available for students.

We are committed to supporting our students’ wellbeing, and will take active steps to ensure all students can access Oxford’s enriching opportunities regardless of their personal backgrounds or circumstances.

We will provide more detailed information about the arrangements for students as soon as it is possible to do so.
