Events for Sixth Formers

Sixth Form Study Days (Year 12)

Study Days intended for sixth formers in the maintained sector are to give them the opportunity to find out more about the subject they are interested in studying at university.  The events allow students to engage critically with their subject as well as encourage them to work independently and prepare for their university applications.

Oxford Application Information Sessions (Years 12 &  13)

These are for students who are intending to make an application to Oxford but is also relevant to students applying to a competitive University or for a competitive course. Information is given about the application process, what tutors are looking for, and how to prepare for making a competitive application.

Oxbridge Information Events

The Admissions Officer visits schools and colleges to give presentations, jointly with a colleague from Cambridge, on academic and social life at Oxford and Cambridge, the College system and application process.  The events are designed for students, teachers and careers advisors (and, in the case of evening events, parents).

We ask schools and colleges to work collaboratively, where possible, and encourage host institutions to open the event to others in their local area.  If you are interested in setting up an Information Event for your school or college, or would be interested in serving as a host venue for your local area, please contact the Admissions and Access Officer.

Informal Visits

We are pleased to host informal visits at Christ Church for sixth formers throughout the year.  These events give students the opportunity to learn more about life at Oxford, our courses and the application process, as well as meet current students, and eat lunch in an Oxford college dining hall.

UNIQ Summer Schools

The UNIQ summer schools are the only official summer schools for the University of Oxford. It is important to stress that whilst Oxford provides facilities and accomodation for other summer school experiences (that often require substantial attendance fees) these are not officially endorsed by the University and are in no way connected to the UNIQ summer schools. 

The aim of the UNIQ summer schools is to award places to those who would benefit the most from the aspiration raising activities which are at the heart of the summer school experience. Therefore, preference is given to applicants who come from schools with little or no history of successful application to Oxford, and to applicants who live in postcode areas in which we would expect fewer young people to go on to higher education. Please see the UNIQ website for more details about the courses available and the application process:
