The University of Oxford has an agreement with the Office for Fair Access that it will aim to meet certain targets relating to the admission of students from under-represented groups, identified by indicators of educational and socio-economic disadvantage. More information can be found here.
The targets agreed with OFFA, and the figures relating to Mansfield’s UK offer holders for 2017 entry, are as follows:
Target 1: increase the percentage of UK undergraduate students entering Oxford from schools and colleges that historically have had limited progression to Oxford to at least 14.5% in 2019-20.
Target for 2017-18: 13.5%
Mansfield offers for 2017: 32.9%
Target 2: increase the percentage of UK undergraduate students entering Oxford from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds (ACORN postcodes 4 and 5) to at least 9.5% in 2019-20.

Mansfield offers for 2017: 22.9%
Target 3: increase the percentage of UK undergraduates entering Oxford from neighbourhoods with low participation in higher education (POLAR3 postcodes 1 and 2) to at least 13.0% in 2019-20.
