A Detailed Article On The Admission Requirements Into University Of Oxford For 2021 Entry

Spread the love

In order to take up the offer of a place to study here at University Of Oxford, all applicants must meet the qualification requirements of their course.

Many students who apply to Oxford are taking A-levels but we also accept a whole range of other equivalent qualifications.

Many successful candidates exceed the academic qualification requirements for their course.

However, exam results are only a part of the information we use to build a picture of your academic ability and potential, so even the best possible grades won’t guarantee you a place.

Extra-curricular activities are only relevant if they help to demonstrate how you meet the selection criteria. Read more about our selection criteria and applying to Oxford.

University Of Oxford 2021 Entry Requirements

For most courses, all applicants are also required to take an admissions test.

Such tests allow us to compare students using a single benchmark, irrespective of the students’ educational background. For information on these admissions tests please the individual course pages or ox.ac.uk/tests.

If you are concerned about the effect of coronavirus (Covid-19) on your studies and/or offer to study at the University, please visit our dedicated coronavirus (Covid-19) webpage which has all the latest updates and advice for offer holders and prospective applicants.


Below is a summary of the requirements for each course.

International Students

Oxford is one of the most international universities in the world. Today, one third of its students, including 17% of undergraduates, are international citizens, and come from over 150 countries. Oxford welcomes applications from international students.

All applicants apply via UCAS by 15 October, and follow the same process as UK applicants. Whilst the application process itself is the same, we recognise that there are a number of additional elements international students will need to consider when applying to Oxford, including English language requirements and visa and immigration information. Interview arrangements and test arrangements can also be slightly different for international candidates.

o make sure we consider all applicants thoroughly and fairly, there are several stages to our admissions process. Each one is outlined below. It is important you understand your role in each of these stages and are aware of the deadlines. The admissions timeline provides an overview of the process.

Our UCAS application deadline is 15 October and earlier than most other universities. This is also the date by which you will need to have your test candidate entry number if your course requires you to sit an admissions test as part of the selection process.

Check the admission requirements for your course before applying.
