Student Conferences

Thank you for visiting the Oxford and Cambridge Student Conferences website. Planning for the 2018 Conferences is underway and bookings will open in January 2018. Please re-visit this page then.

You can see what last year's conferences had to offer below. 

Oxford & Cambridge Student Conferences 2017
Oxford & Cambridge Student Conferences 2017

These conferences are designed to provide up-to-date information on the application and admissions procedure at both institutions as well as providing an insight into student life. The events are aimed at students who have already completed their GCSE examinations (or equivalent) and are now undertaking further study.

The conferences will cover:

  • Courses available at Oxford and Cambridge
  • Applying to Oxford and Cambridge (including Student Life)
  • Student finance and careers
  • Interviews
  • Oxford & Cambridge Admissions for Teachers and HE Advisors - new programme for 2017 at most venues

Admissions tutors, academic staff and current undergraduates from both universities will also be on hand to answer students' questions. Please note: the Scottish Conference provides information specifically for students in the Scottish Education System.

For 2017 we have updated the programme of sessions for teachers and HE advisors and encourage teachers to consider attending alongside students.

Admission is by ticket only and all bookings should be made through a teacher. Please do not arrive at a conference venue without having made a booking as you will be turned away.


If you recently attended one of the Oxford and Cambridge Student Conferences, we would like to hear from you!

For the chance to win an iPad mini, we would appreciate any thoughts you had about the conference. All fully completed feedback requests received by 28 April 2017 will be placed into a random prize draw and we will contact the winning person in May 2017. The winner must have attended the event and will be checked against our database.

To provide feedback, and enter the prize draw, please go to our Feedback Survey.

The students seem to be really enthusiastic about their courses and I felt that these were the kinds of people I would like to study alongside.
