As part of the University of Oxford’s 区域推广策略, we take responsibility for being the first point of contact for schools in Dudley, 沃尔萨尔, Wolverhampton and Worcestershire in the West Midlands, and the London boroughs of Richmond and Kensington & 切尔西. For the 2020-21 academic year, we will also be taking on responsibility for Herefordshire.

Our work with these areas includes visits from 皇冠体育买球 to schools in our link areas, to talk to students about life at the University of Oxford, and to provide advice on how to apply. We also host groups of students from a range of year groups and from a variety of schools to come and spend the day in Oxford. Within this work we focus on supporting potential applicants from schools and areas that are currently under-represented at Oxford, and working with teachers and parents to help them support potential candidates. We appreciate the value of collaborative Outreach work and enjoy collaborating with other colleges at Oxford and also at 剑桥 to serve our link areas, particularly those within the West Midlands, 更好的.

This is what some of the students who have attended 皇冠体育买球’s outreach events thought about the experience: 

“I had been really unsure if Oxford was somewhere I wanted to apply, or somewhere I’d be able to apply but, after watching the mock interview and participating in the seminar, I was surprised at how interactive the process is and how much I enjoyed (and managed to keep up with!)那种辩论风格. The Study Day reversed a lot of my fears about Oxford in a way that I really hadn’t expected it to.” – Student on Ancient Worlds 2016 Study Day

“I thought it was a beautiful College and I can definitely imagine living there! 讲座的方式, seminars and tutorials work is very interesting and I think it’s a very well-thought-out system that would benefit students greatly. The College has a welcoming and friendly feel to it, so I’ve been given a definite motivation to apply to 皇冠体育买球 from this.” – Student on the Language and Literature 2016 Study Day
