The deadline for submitting written work is 10 November. Each piece of work you submit should sent as one multi-page PDF file (including cover sheet) to email@example.com. If you are unable to scan and email your written work, you can submit it in hard copy, single-sided and not stapled, to the Admissions Office, Mansfield College, Mansfield Road, OX1 3TF. Please ensure that you use adequate postage, and do also bear in mind that work we have received via post cannot be returned.
Subject tutors review each application before deciding on a shortlist in late November or early December. Tutors then interview the shortlisted candidates, usually in early to mid December. We will contact you as soon as we have made a decision about your application, and we will try to give you as much notice as possible. We will also notify candidates who have not been shortlisted at the same time. Please check your inbox and junk inbox for emails.
If you have not heard from the College by a week before the scheduled interview date, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01865 282920. The interview timetable along with further information about interviews at Oxford is available.
