Applying to Oxford
We assess applications holistically. Your personal statement, teacher’s reference (both of these are part of your UCAS form), admissions test performance and written work (if necessary for your course), help us to decide on the outcome of your application in conjunction with your predicted grades from school and college, or your actual grades if you have already completed your studies.
Admissions Tests and Written Work
Many subjects will require you to take a test and/or submit some written work as part of your application. The requirements to complete these will be the same regardless of the college that you apply to. Find out whether your course has a test and how you can effectively prepare. You will need to register for your test here. The requirements for written work vary from course to course. To find out whether you course requires written work and the deadline for submissions, please see here.
Oxford interviews take place in December and are a part of the process that applicants often worry about, but we would like to reassure you! They are designed to imitate tutorials, which form a core part of teaching at Oxford. Interviews are looking for you to demonstrate your enthusiasm for your subject, your analytical skills, and how you apply your existing knowledge to questions and scenarios that you may not have encountered before.
If you have any questions about applying to Lincoln College and what we can offer, you are welcome to contact the Admissions Officer. Applicants should regularly check this page for updates, alongside the University Admissions Office page.
