“Actions taken and views expressed by Professor Kate Tunstall in a petition concerning a teaching boycott of Oriel College were made in a personal capacity. Worcester College was not consulted in advance and remains focused on its primary purpose of educating students and protecting their welfare.”

Every year, Oxford University releases its Annual Admissions Statistical Report, breaking down the number of applications and acceptances over a three year period by college and subject, as well as by a number of different demographic groups and indicators of educational and socio-economic disadvantage. Most of the data presented in the report that has been released today is aggregated for the admissions years 2018-2020.

7th January 2021

In January 2020, we reported our success in making admissions fair across three of our four access targets. At the time we were unable to report on our progress towards the fourth target (concerning equal access for BAME students) because the relevant data had not yet been made available to us.

The College flag flies at half-mast today in honour of Francis Lamport, who died peacefully on Tuesday. Emeritus Fellow of the College, Francis was Fellow and Tutor in German from 1966 to 2001. When we are able, we will hold an event in memory of a wonderful colleague, brilliant linguist, much-loved teacher, and dear friend.

Interim Provost

14th August 2020

Many members of our college community and beyond have expressed their concern for the potential impact of yesterday’s A Level results on this year’s incoming students. At Worcester we made offers in 2020 to our most diverse cohort ever, and in response to the uncertainties surrounding this year’s assessment, we have confirmed the places of all our UK offer-holders, irrespective of their A-level results.
