Undergraduate Admissions

You can find full details of the application process on the University Admissions website, including the Admissions Timeline; there is also plenty of helpful information in the Oxford University Undergraduate Prospectus.

What are we looking for?

We assess every application on its individual merits and consider:

  • Your personal statement and teacher's reference

  • Your academic performance to date and achieved/predicted exam results
  • Your performance at interview
  • Any submitted written work and admissions test results (if applicable)

Getting ready for interview

The interview is an important part of the process, but remember it’s not the main deciding factor. We simply want to assess how you respond in a situation that’s similar to an Oxford tutorial. Think of it as a discussion, not an interrogation.
