Can I visit Oxford University?
We have another University-wide open day on 20 September. If you cannot attend then and wish to come over the summer, you are welcome to make an independent visit. Other opportunities to attend events and find out more about studying at Oxford are listed in our events calendar.?
Do I have to book for the September open day?
There is a lot happening on our open day. Most events run on a drop-in basis but some colleges and departments run events that you need to book in advance. You can read about open days and also check our advice on planning your day.
What subjects should I take to A-level (or equivalent)?
Are my GCSEs good enough for Oxford?
GCSEs will be taken into account when we consider your application but they are just one aspect that we look at. Tutors will also consider your achieved or predicted grades at A-level (or other equivalent qualifications), your personal statement, academic reference, and any written work or written tests required for your course. If your application is shortlisted, your performance at interview will also be taken in to account. Further information about how we consider GCSEs in context is available on our UK qualifications page.
What grades do I need to make a competitive application to Oxford?
The exact subject requirements vary depending on the course you want to apply for. As a guide, you will need to achieve between AAA and A*A*A at A-level or an equivalent level qualification. Read our course pages to find out the specific requirements for each.
