Outreach and Open Days
Working with pupils
We want to attract the best and brightest students – regardless of background – to apply to us. We want to make sure that when people are thinking of applying to University they have all the information they need.
Our access and outreach team work with schools, teachers and partner organisations – including The Access Project, the Brilliant Club, Oxford Pathways, Target Oxbridge and UNIQ – to widen participation to the University.
In 2018, over 3,700 people came with school trips to Keble and we interacted with 700 more in outreach activities in schools. If you want to arrange for someone from our team to visit your school or organise a school visit to Keble please contact Nicole Boothman, the Outreach Officer.
Each Oxford college is linked to a Local Authority to ensure that all schools have a first point of contact within the University. Keble is linked with Birmingham, Sandwell, Solihull, Coventry, and Warwickshire. If you are a teacher or a Careers Adviser in any of these areas, please feel free to contact us about arranging school visits or other outreach activities. We’re most suited to working with secondary school and sixth form groups.
There are three Open Days each year – coinciding with the whole University – when you can discover more about Keble, get tours from our current students and meet tutors at subject sessions. In 2019 the dates are:
Wednesday 3 July
Thursday 4 July
Friday 20 September
Booking for accommodation at Keble is now closed for this coming Open Day Friday 20 September. We’ll start taking bookings for the next Open Days in May 2020.
Would you like to attend an Open Day but are worried about the cost of getting to Oxford? Here at Keble we have some funding available to those who might otherwise be prevented from coming. Please email us to find out if we can help you.
Upcoming Access and Outreach Events
This autumn we’re running a series of Year 13 Admissions Test & Interview Evenings in the West Midlands. These events are designed to boost the confidence of those year 13s at state schools who are considering applying to either the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge this academic year by providing them with information, advice and guidance about the admissions processes at both institutions with a particular focus on the admissions tests/assessments and interviews. To book a place the year 13s need to complete this booking form.
We’re also now taking bookings for visits to Keble and the wider university for the autumn and spring terms. To make an enquiry please contact Nicole Boothman, the Outreach Officer.
