University of Oxford representative to visit Hong Kong

Posted: March 27, 2015

Over the past few years the University has seen large numbers of students from Hong Kong making successful applications to Oxford, and students and parents will have the opportunity to meet with Charlotte Isaacs, Student Recruitment Officer from the University of Oxford at the following locations in Hong Kong. The sessions are primarily aimed at students currently in Year 12 and their parents.

  • Sha Tin College, No. 3 Lai Wo Lane, Fo Tan, Sha Tin, Hong Kong
    Monday 20 April, 6.30-7.30pm
  • Island School, 20 Borrett Road, Mid-Levels, Hong Kong
    Wednesday 22 April, 6.30-7.30pm

If you are interested in attending, please complete this reply form by Friday 3 April so that we can ensure enough seating.

These sessions are designed to provide detailed and accurate information regarding all of the aspects that one might consider when applying to Oxford. This will include; the choice of course, the collegiate structure of the University, social life and the application process itself, including admissions tests and interviews. We are extremely grateful to both schools for hosting these events.

Competition for places at Oxford is strong, and tutors would normally consider students achieving the following grades; between A*A*A and AAA at A-Level, or the International Baccalaureate with around 38-40, including core points, with 6s and 7s at Higher Level, or the HKDSE with grade 5s in three elective subjects, (The exception is for candidates applying to study Mathematics, who would need 5* in the compulsory Mathematics course, 5 in the Mathematics extended paper, and another 5 in another subject.)
