What are the Regional Teacher Conferences?
The University organises free CPD accredited Regional Teachers’ Conferences.
Organised by Oxford’s Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach office, the conferences aim to equip teachers with the best possible advice for their students on applying to Oxford and to break down any misconceptions that might deter students from applying to the University.
Sessions are led by academic tutors and central admissions staff, all with extensive first-hand knowledge of the admissions process. Current undergraduate students will also be there to talk about their personal experiences of applying.
The programme for the conferences covers all aspects of the admissions process from identifying candidates to writing references and preparing candidates for admissions tests and interviews. The programme will include a mock interview session in which tutors and students demonstrate the kind of questions applicants face in interviews.
In 2019 we will be holding a Teachers' Conference in central Edinburgh on Friday 31 May 2019 (venue details to be confirmed soon).
The conference will run from approximately 9:15am to 4:00pm. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
There is no charge for this event.

This event is open to teachers in schools and colleges based anywhere in the UK.
Teachers from state-funded schools and colleges will be given priority.
Due to limited capacity at the event we can only accept one teacher from each school/college.
This event is not open to teachers based in international schools.
