Bangladeshi and Pakistani Women

University of Oxford

Access Day

University of Oxford Access Day for Young Women from State schools in Years 10-12 with Bangladeshi and Pakistani heritage

Date: 6 March 2024

Time: 09:30-16:00

Venue: Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies and the afternoon at Trinity College, University of Oxford

Trinity College is again collaborating with the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) and Jesus college to offer young women in YR10-12 with Bangladeshi and Pakistani heritage an exciting access day. The aim of the day is to encourage students to consider Oxford as one of their future options. Students will have the opportunity to visit the Oxford Centre of Islamic studies, Trinity and Jesus College, experience an academic taster, gain guidance and information relating to courses and admissions and hear from current students with shared identities.

Your students will have the opportunity for discussion with the brightest women in their fields, chat to our current students and potential future mentors.

For the last half of the day, we’ll have an informational talk about applying to Oxford and to explore what you can do with an Oxford degree. We’ll also have informal discussions over tea followed by Q&A with our current undergraduates and society members.

 Logistics, funding and applying

Year 10 – 11 students must be accompanied by a teacher or parent. All parents welcome 

As we expect to receive many applications for a place, please encourage request places asap. If oversubscribed, we'll prioritise places for schools who wish to bring students who are eligible for free school meals, care experienced, and/or first in the family to go to university. We also recommend you bring students showing academic talent and/ or potential. 

For sixth form students this would include those who are predicted the minimum entry requirements for Oxford's courses of AAA or our foundation course BBB. For Year 10 and 11 this would include those students predicted to achieve at least 5 GCSE grades 5-9.

Teachers, please submit a booking request using THIS FORM by the 26th of January 2024. We will then be in touch to let you know if we can offer places to your students within 10 working days (excluding Christmas vacation period) or by 2nd February 2024, whichever is sooner.
