Demystifying Oxford Law Admissions

The Oxford Law Faculty is piloting virtual visits to UK non-selective state schools with the aim of demystifying the Oxford law admissions process and provide students with interactive small group sessions in which students can practice key parts of the admissions tests for Oxford law.  

The virtual visits will include information about the Oxford Law admissions process, a demonstration admissions interview and practice interview and LNAT (Law National Admissions Test) workshops. The sessions will be lead by Law faculty members with the assistance of current law students.  

The sessions will last between 2 to 3 hours, with short breaks, and take place during school hours. They will be online either using Zoom or Microsoft Teams. We anticipate the first sessions will be held between late September and mid October 2021.

The visits are open to students studying in the same year they will apply to University. Only 15 students per school will be allowed to participate in the virtual visit, but the school is free to choose those 15 students. Schools may be combined for some of the demonstration and information sessions, but all workshops will be for individual schools only.   

Expressions of interest (EOI) are due by 23 July and must be sent to Expressions of interest must come from the school directly. If you're a student and want to be involved, ask your headteacher to register your school.

In your EOI please confirm your school is a non-selective state school (which is the only firm eligibility criteria) but also include contextual data about the school and catchment area, including levels of socio-economic disadvantage and rates of progression to higher education.  This additional information will help us prioritise school visits in the event of high demand. It may not be possible to visit all schools in the initial pilot. 

If you have any questions about the virtual visits please email the Law Faculty's Access & Outreach Co-ordinator, Andrew Higgins.
