For Students

Outreach and Access for Prospective Students

If you want to know more about what a university is, how Oxford is different or how to make a competitive application to Oxford, then this page is for you!

We are currently adding new materials and resources to these pages - please watch this space!

Opportunities for Students

During October-November, we run a number of interview workshops for state schools in our link regions (in the North East: Gateshead, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, North Tyneside, Northumberland, South Tyneside, and Sunderland and in London: Hillingdon and Southwark). We ask schools to host these visits, and students from across our link regions are welcome to attend.

Alongside Trinity and Christ Church Colleges, with support from Lincoln College, St Anne’s offers an annual residential for state school students from the North East of England (from Middlesbrough to Northumberland). This residential ties in with the main University of Oxford Open Days (end of June, beginning of July) and is a great opportunity for students who are considering an application to Oxford to find out more about the university in person. The residential is free to attend, and all travel, meal and accommodation costs are covered. To find or more, or to apply, click here.

Aim for Oxford is St Anne’s College’s new sustained outreach programme, especially for state school students from the North East of England. It runs for up to two years, and supports participants to make strong applications for Oxford. Find out more here.

These sessions are aimed more broadly at students considering university from the North East of England (not just for those considering Oxford or Cambridge) and will take place online in July 2020. To apply for your place, please complete the form here.

Want to explore your subject in more detail, or learn about a new topic? Currently just open to students in our link regions of Hillingdon, Southwark and the North East of England, the St Anne’s Super-Curricular Club offers weekly topics, short videos, quizzes and discussions on a wide range of subjects.

Visiting St Anne's

Prospective applicants are welcome to visit the college throughout the year - please let the Porters know as you arrive.

If you would like a guided tour, please contact our Outreach Team and if we are available, we would be more than happy to show you around!

You can also view a short virtual tour of the college as well as a more detailed virtual tour if you want to see more!

We strongly recommend visiting Oxford on one of its Open Days to get the most out of your visit.
