Official Guide For An Oxford Applicant

Part 1: What Oxford is Like

Part 2: How to Apply to Oxford

Part 3: Ways you can Prepare

Mature Students

At Oxford, we understand that people often develop their academic interests and skills later in life, and the advantage of the Oxford admissions process is that each individual application is scrutinised carefully by our academic teaching staff. We are looking for the candidates with the most academic potential, irrespective of their age or background. Just like everyone else who applies, mature students need to demonstrate academic ability and commitment to study. ('Mature student' means 21 or over at the start of October in your first year.)

International Students

Oxford is one of the most international universities in the world. Today, one third of its students, including 17% of undergraduates, are international citizens, and come from over 150 countries. Oxford welcomes applications from international students.

Families and Supporters

When it comes to deciding what to do after school, everyone benefits from the support of the family and friends who know them best. Having said that, it's not always easy to know how to help, so we want to make sure you have to hand the information you might need. We hope you'll find our dedicated webpages for families and supporters helpful.

To give you more information about Oxford, we have arranged livestreams with some of our tutors, who can help answer any questions you might have. Ask your questions and watch our livestreams below from 08:00-08:50.
