This information is for candidates that have applied by the 15th October 2021 deadline for entry in 2022 or 2023.
Below is some information on the next steps and key dates for your application:
- Candidates will receive an email after the UCAS deadline acknowledging their application. Please read this through carefully and if any of the information in your email is incorrect, such as course title or entry date, please inform the admissions office.
- Candidates who are required to sit tests, should do so on the 3rd or 4th November in their school/test centre, if registered. If you have not registered for a test and you were required to, please contact the admissions office as soon as possible. Please note that after 15th October it is too late to register for the tests.
- Written work should be submitted by 10th November – further information can be found below.
Submission of Written Work
Some courses require you to submit written work along with your application. If you are unsure if your course requires this please follow this link: http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/applying-to-oxford/guide/written-work. Remember to check your full course page for their requirements as this differs across courses.
If you are required to send in written work, the deadline for submission is 10th November 2021 – this is the date by which it is to arrive. Please ensure that you are aware of the exact written work requirements by visiting www.ox.ac.uk/writwork.
To submit your written work please email email@example.com a PDF formatted, scanned copy of written work with the required coversheet. If you are unable to scan and email your work, you can post it to the Admissions Office, Regent’s Park College, Pusey Street, Oxford, OX1 2LB. Please ensure that you use adequate postage; it may also be advisable to use registered post. Please bear in mind that mailed-in written work cannot be returned.
We are unable to accept work that is hosted on file sharing sites, such as Google Drive and Dropbox.
Interviewing in 2021
All interviews will be conducted remotely this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/applying-to-oxford/guide/interviews for further information.
Shortlisting for Interview
Candidates who are shortlisted for interview will be contacted by email at least one week before their interviews are due to take place. We aim to send out shortlisting decisions sooner than a week before, but this is not always possible. It is also possible that candidates who have applied to different subjects and colleges may hear at a different time to you; do not worry if this is the case, as there can be significant differences between courses and colleges. If you have not received any communication a week before interviews for your course are due to start, please contact the admissions office as soon as possible.
You can find information regarding interview timetables here: http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/applying-to-oxford/guide/interviews
Candidates are reminded of the declaration they made on their UCAS application that the information is true, complete and accurate and no information has been omitted.
We cannot accept further unsolicited references that are additional to the reference on your UCAS. Any that are received will not be considered.
If you need to change your contact details you can do this directly through UCAS, but please also let the admissions office know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a disability that you have not already disclosed on your UCAS application, please let us know. Whether you have disclosed your disability on UCAS or not, please let us know if there are any special arrangements or support that would help you, so that we can make any appropriate, reasonable arrangements for you in good time, if you are invited to interview. Mentioning your disability or Specific Learning Difficulty will not affect your application, as admissions decisions are made solely on the grounds of academic merit. Information provided may be shared with colleagues in the college (and University more widely) who would be involved with making any required arrangements. Please refer to www.ox.ac.uk/swd for further information on sources of support for students with disabilities.
If you have any queries relating to the admissions process, please email the Admissions Office:
Please note that we cannot discuss shortlisting decisions over the phone.
