Admissions

Applications


The deadline for applications is 15 October each year, and should be made through UCAS. Applicants can specify either a college or Permanent Private Hall (PPH) as their ‘college of preference’ using the online UCAS application system. There is a drop-down list from which candidates choose their college or PPH, each of which have ‘campus codes’. Regent’s Park’s campus code is 8.  We participate in university open days, but those interested in seeing the College and meeting staff and/or students are welcome to make appointments to come and look around at other convenient times.


Interviews


Interviews take place in December each year. Those applicants nominating Regent’s Park as their first choice are accommodated in College during the interviews, which are usually spread out over two or three days. The format for interviews varies a little from subject to subject; most require written work to be sent in advance, and some require applicants to sit an unseen (sometimes written) test when they come up for interview. It’s good advice to read as much in your chosen subject as you can before interview, and to practise critical skills. Conditional offers usually require AAA and in some cases A*s. Equivalent marks in the International Baccalaureate are required. More information is available on the University website.  Our admissions tutor is Dr Julian Thompson, who can be contacted in writing, by telephone (01865 288120), or by email: julian.thompson@regents.ox.ac.uk.
