"Going to Oxford was not something that I had ever had in mind before, but going there opened my mind to the opportunities that it would give me if I were to apply for the university."
We encourage visits from school groups in years 9-12 to provide information about Oxford and answer any questions students have about continuing their education at university level. We are particularly keen to make contact with schools with little or no history of sending students to the University of Oxford.
Each visit involves a variety of different activities designed to give students an impression of university life and all that Oxford has to offer. We tailor visits to the particular needs or preferences of the visiting group, but a sample timetable can be found below.
10.30-11.00 Arrival, welcome and refreshments
11.00-11.30 Talk: Oxford Explained
11.30-12.00 Q&A with current students
12.00-12.30 Tour of Mansfield
13.15-14.15 Academic taster session
14.15 Free time to explore Oxford / departure
We prioritise schools and colleges in our link regions, but we welcome enquiries from other schools and colleges who would like to visit Mansfield.
