Schools and Outreach

Wadham’s access and outreach team provides a responsive and inclusive programme to help young people make informed choices about their futures.

Our Link Regions

Under the University’s Regionalisation Scheme, each Oxford College focuses their outreach work on particular local authorities across the UK. Our link regions are Barking and Dagenham, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hackney, Havering, Islington, Luton, Newham, Redbridge and Tower Hamlets.

Wadham Summer Schools

Pupils take part in a week-long academic programme, live in College, meet student ambassadors studying at Oxford, and receive information, advice and guidance on applying to university. Applicants must be year 12s studying at a UK state school or sixth form. There are 48 places available each year, across three subject streams: Classics, Modern Languages, and Biology & Human Sciences.

Many thanks to Wadham alumni and the McCall MacBain Foundation for funding specific subject streams.

Application Support

Wadham offers workshops to link schools to support university applications including the Oxbridge application process. These include:

Creating a Personal Statement Workshops

Admissions Test Workshops

Interview Workshops

From Primary School onwards
