The application process

The initial stages of the application process are the same at Queen’s as they are at any other college in the University. UCAS applications are due by 6pm (UK time) on 16 October 2023 for 2024 entry (this date is usually 15 October, except where the date falls on a weekend). Applicants need to ensure that they have registered for any necessary admissions tests. The deadline for admissions test registration is 29 September 2023 (except for the LNAT). The most comprehensive information about applying to the University is available on the central University admissions webpages

Interviews will take place online in December 2023.

If you are a current applicant and would like step-by-step support with each stage of our admissions process, we recommend that you sign-up for the University’s Choosing Oxford newsletter.

The College supports the University’s policy about the age of candidates for undergraduate admissions, which states:

‘Oxford University welcomes applications from students regardless of their age. However, potential candidates for all courses will be expected to demonstrate a mature approach to the study of their subject, including skills of critical analysis, wide contextual knowledge and the ability to manage their own time effectively. If, for welfare reasons, relating to age or other grounds, a College considers that it is not in the best interests of an individual student to live in College, they will discuss alternative options, if an offer of a place is made.’

The College is happy to consider applications from students regardless of their age. Recognizing that thriving on an undergraduate course requires both intellectual and personal maturity, the College may decide to offer a place for academic reasons, while deferring the entry year until a later date when the College is fully confident in the candidate’s ability to meet the challenges of university study. 

For Medicine, the College follows the University policy, i.e. ‘Students must be 18 years of age at the time they start the Medicine course. The clinical contact in our programme starts in the first term and means that younger students would not be able to take part in required elements of the course. For Medicine, your application will not be shortlisted unless you will be at least 18 years old on the 1 November of your first term.’ This requirement brings the Medical School into line with many other top-ranking Medical Schools in the UK and is further explained in the FAQs on the Medical Sciences website.

Finding out your result

We will send out admissions decisions for 2024 entry on 9 January 2024, at the same time as the other colleges. Unfortunately, we are not able to give out application results before this date.


Our tutors are looking for academic enthusiasm, capability, and potential. You will be expected to think on your feet; take the interview questions at face-value, ask for help if you need it, speak through your thought process out loud, be honest, and make the most of being given the chance to speak to experts in your subject! 

Tutors are not trying to trick you or make you feel uncomfortable; they actually want to help you do your best.
