Applying to Oak Hill


The admissions cycle for September 2022 entry will open later in the autumn.  If you would like us to notify you when it opens, please complete the contact form to let us know.

The information in this section will be updated for the next admissions cycle, but if you're interested in full or part time study, on an undergraduate or postgraduate programme, what's here will give you a fair idea of what's involved in the application process.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Office and we'll be glad to help.

Our Admissions Policy governs our admissions process; you can see the full policy, and our Student Enquirers Privacy Notice at the bottom of the page.

1. Attend an open morning

We'd love to meet you in person and start to get to know you, and the best way to do that is to come to an Open Morning.  You'll get a much better feel in person for our ethos, student experience and training and you'll have plenty of opportunity to ask your questions.  Visit our open morning page to see the options in light of Covid-19.

3. Interview day

An interview day includes an interview with a faculty member, an opportunity to hear more about our programmes and ethos, to discuss your accommodation needs and financial situation, and to chat with current students.  You can also choose to attend a lecture and join in chapel when it's on.  This year we are offering both Zoom and, where possible, in-person interview dates.  Take a look at the interview day dates that work for you to work out when you need to apply.

4. Offer

Normally you should expect to hear from us within five working days of your interview day as to whether we are offering you a place.

5. Accept offer and apply for accommodation

Let us know by the agreed date whether you’d like to accept the offer and, if you do, you can also apply for accommodation. Key dates to note:

  • To be considered for the first phase of allocation for married accommodation, you must apply by 12 noon Monday 29 March 2021
  • To be guaranteed single accommodation, you must apply by Monday 26 April 2021 

6. Meeting conditions

All applicants must complete a financial assurances form and meet its conditions before being able to study. We may place other conditions on your offer as well, so please make sure you are aware of these and respond appropriately.

7. Assured place

Once you’ve accepted an offer and met all the conditions, you’ll be given an assured place. This means you can then be formally considered for college accommodation.

8. Preparing for arrival

From May, we start asking those with an assured place to complete various forms and from late June/early July we'll give you your Oak Hill email account details so that you can access a wealth of welcome information.   Some forms are to be completed by Tuesday 10 August 2021; other things you'll be asked to do before Welcome Week which starts on Monday 6 September 2021.
