FE Open Days
This year the FE and Sixth Form College Open Day will take place on Friday 26 June.
FE and Sixth Form College Open Day
Mansfield College hosts annual Open Days for students and staff in Further Education and Sixth Form Colleges. The events are attended by tutors and undergraduates from across the University, ensuring that students are catered for whatever their subject interest, and also include sessions for staff in the FE sector.
FE Access Initiative
The Oxford Further Education Access was formed by Mansfield College in 1999 as a Widening Participation Initiative with the aim of encouraging applications to the university from the Further Education (FE) sector, a particularly under-represented group at Oxford.
The FE Access Initiative works with Further Education and Sixth Form Colleges across the UK, offering talks, interview workshops, staff conferences, e-mentoring, interview information days and subject-specific study days. Lord Patten, Chancellor of Oxford University, called the FE Initiative 'one of Oxford’s most important and imaginative initiatives,' and the 2008 OFFA Agreement named it 'the most significant of Oxford’s access programmes.'
FE and Sixth Form Colleges wishing to make contact with an Oxford University representative should contact their regional link College in the first instance, but are welcome to contact Mansfield College at any time. Interested students and staff should check this page for updates about upcoming events for the FE sector.
