Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach

The Undergraduate Admissions offices provide a central admissions service for the colleges and applicants to Oxford, advising the collegiate University of admissions policies, promoting the Common Framework (which aims to attract the most academically able regardless of background), and works to ensure the public perception of Oxford is well informed.

A central admissions enquiries service is provided at the Admissions i, alongside production of the prospectus, University Open Days support and coordination of admissions tours. The Operations team coordinates the undergraduate admissions process: it produces admissions data, organises Far East and North American interviews, dispatches UCAS applications to colleges and departments, dispatches Oxford tests and organises pre-interview tests, coordinates August results, and develops ADSS to assist subjects participating in the selection exercise.

The Student Recruitment team organises events for potential applicants, their parents, teachers and careers advisors, including regional conferences, HE fairs, school visits and European student recruitment tours, and coordinates overseas undergraduate recruitment activities.

The Widening Access and Widening Participation teams contribute to and coordinate access efforts across the collegiate University, with the aim of raising aspirations, attainments and progression rates into HE and increasing application and offer rates from underrepresented target groups. Activities include the UNIQ summer schools programme, visit days and mentoring programmes, and support of college outreach efforts.
