Support for Offer Holders

We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, especially with school closures.

For any students in years 12 and 13, you may be worried about how the current situation will impact your Oxford application. For the latest information from Oxford University, please check out the main website. We will update this page as soon as we have further information from the Government on how qualifications will be awarded.

Following the announcement that UK schools will be closing and exams will not be taking place this May and June, our thoughts are with you and your schools. We will be closely monitoring the situation and awaiting further information from Government on how qualifications will be awarded. We also understand the impact that coronavirus may have had on offer holders outside the UK. We are committed to supporting all our offer-holders as best we can at this difficult time and wish you the very best.

We will be welcoming students from the start of the Autumn term, with a continued commitment to Oxford’s personalised learning, with colleges open, and with health measures in place to keep students and staff safe. We are working in a flexible way, and will follow all government advice. If you are holding an offer to begin studying here in the autumn, please see the University’s guidance for offer holders. If you have any specific concerns about the offer you are holding, please get in touch with your admitting College directly or contact our Academic Office (enquiries@earth.ox.ac.uk).
