Oxford Pathways Programme

The Oxford Pathways Programme is an initiative coordinated by the colleges of the University of Oxford, with support from the Sutton Trust. The programme aims to provide information, advice and guidance on higher education and Oxford to academically able students, and staff members, in non-selective state schools with little history of student progression to Oxford. All of our events are run in Oxford, and are free to attend. For more information, see

Is my school eligible?

We work with specifically targeted state schools across the UK. On the whole these are schools without sixth forms, or schools with little, if any, history of sending students to Oxford. If you would like to check whether your school is eligible please contact us on .H

Events we run

Year 10 Taster Days:

These days run from February to May and give academically able year 10 students a chance to visit Oxford for a taste of what it would be like to study here. The programme includes an introduction to higher education and student finance, interactive sessions with current students, lunch served in the college dining hall, and participation in an academic activity.
