Reaching applicants from all backgrounds
Each year, we aim to admit students who can make their own unique contribution to our learning community.
Achieving this means looking beyond purely academic achievements and considering the performance of each applicant in context during the admissions process – taking into account the school they attend, their economic and social background, and other factors such as whether they are the first in their family to go to university.
Our new admissions schemes
From 2020 entry, we will be launching three new pilot admissions schemes for Home students from underrepresented groups at the College.
The schemes will vary across our three faculties (Engineering, Medicine and Natural Sciences) but will range from guaranteeing interviews in some departments to considering making slightly lower than standard offers in others.
More information about each scheme and our eligibility criteria will be published on this page shortly so please check back for details.
