University of Oxford Requirements

Many students who apply to Oxford are taking A-levels but any candidate who has already taken, or who is currently studying, any other equivalent qualifications is also most welcome to apply.

The information below outlines the general entrance requirements. In some subjects, particularly sciences, candidates are required to have studied certain subjects to at least A-level standard. If a candidate has studied an alternative course, tutors would require evidence that the course covers the same content as A-level to the appropriate standard. Please see the specific subject requirements on the individual course pages or in this summary table of subject requirements.

The selection criteria for all Oxford’s courses relate to your academic achievement and potential. Extra-curricular activities are only relevant if they help to demonstrate how you meet the selection criteria.

In many subjects, students are required to take an admissions test as part of their application. 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.

The University of Oxford is not a campus university and our colleges, departments and other constituent units are to be found throughout the city of Oxford, rather than on one central site. Departmental and college addresses and phone numbers may be found on individual college and departmental websites.

If you have a question you would like to ask, including admission queries, please use our “Any Questions” website. You can search popular questions or submit a question using the “Ask a question” tab. Unfortunately we are unable to respond to letters from individuals.

If you have an issue or feedback relating to the University of Oxford website itself, please contact the webmaster.
