Applying to Queen’s
Choose your subject
The first and most important thing is to be quite sure of the subject you want to apply for. You also need to be certain that the particular course Oxford offers in that subject is the right one for you. You increase your chances of being offered a place immensely if you can convince us at interview that you have a genuine desire to study the course you are applying for above all others and know exactly why that is. To get this fit right is also crucial if you are to enjoy your studies and do well in them.
Then you need to check that Queen’s offers your chosen course. Not all colleges teach all subjects, but Queen’s offers all the main Oxford courses with the exception of Engineering – click here for the list of subjects we offer.
Make an application
The application process is the same for all colleges, and must be done by filling in a UCAS form by 15 October. For most applicants, this will be during their final year at school or college, but you can also apply having completed your secondary education (i.e. post-A-level or equivalent), and we also take mature students and those applying for a second undergraduate degree. You can either apply to a particular college or, if you prefer, make an ‘open’ application, in which case you will be assigned a college automatically. Note that when your application finds its way to us we will not know whether you have chosen Queen’s or whether you have made an open application.
To apply to Queen’s, you need to quote campus code J on your UCAS form.
