Interviews

This year, all admissions interviews will be held online. 

Interviews form an important part of the selection process here in Oxford. The tutors may ask about your school studies and your interests, but you should also expect some searching questions about your subject. In some subjects you may be asked questions arising from your written work, or your reading; in other subjects, the tutors may pose a problem and ask how you would try to solve it, or base the interview on a piece of text you will be given to read. The tutors will not be trying to catch you out, but they will be seeking to find out how well your talents are suited to our courses. If you think that the questions are difficult, you can be reassured that the other candidates in your subject will be thinking much the same!

If you would like to find out more about the interviews, please read the Interviews section of the Oxford University website

The University are offering Remote Interview Workshops (open to state school students) to help guide you through the process. To sign up, please see here.

Interviews at Other Colleges

You might be called for interviews at other colleges. You will be notified of any additional interviews by email (with 24 hours’ notice). It is imperative you regularly check your emails during the interview period for your course (please see here) so you do not miss a second interview. 

Decisions

Decision letters will be sent simultaneously to all candidates regardless of subject. You will receive an email on 12th January 2022 (decisions will also be released via UCAS on this date).
