Making Access Fair

14 January 2020

Some initial thoughts from this year’s admissions cycle:

Today, A-Level students across the country (as well as internationally) will be receiving their offer letters from Oxford University. This year Worcester College began to think differently about access and outreach work, and we are excited to share initial statistics on our success in this admissions cycle with members of our College community. We are proud to report that in our pool of offer holders this year:

83% are studying in state schools

22% live in areas of socio-economic disadvantage (ACORN categories 4 and 5)

20% live in areas with low likelihood of progression to higher education (POLAR quintiles 1 and 2).

Please see this report for more information.
