Widening Access and Outreach

New College is committed to admitting the very best academic applicants, regardless of their social, ethnic, regional or educational background. Through our Outreach Initiative, we hope to encourage applications from students from groups that are currently under-represented at Oxford.

Although not all students will feel that Oxford is the right place for them, we believe it is important that they make a well-informed decision based on up-to-date information about living and studying at the University and that they are not deterred by misconceptions of myths about Oxford being socially exclusive, overly expensive, or unfriendly.

New College's Access and Admissions Administrator, Daniel Powell, provides support and advice for prospective undergraduate applicants, teachers, schools, and anyone else interested in learning more about undergraduate study at the University of Oxford. Daniel works with students, parents and teachers to encourage bright students from all backgrounds to apply to the University of Oxford. 

He can be contacted at admissions@new.ox.ac.uk, or on 01865 279512. Please get in touch if you have any questions about applying to Oxford, or if you would like to arrange a visit, or other event.
