How the Application Process Works


Personal Statement

A personal statement of approximately 500 words to help us get to know you. Tell us about why you would like to attend, what interests you about the Major and Minor/Workshop courses, and what you will contribute to the study abroad program. Let us know about your academic and extracurricular activities or interests and anything else that will help us to get to know you.


Teacher Information

All applicants are asked to submit the name and contact details of a teacher or counselor who can speak knowledgeably about them.

For students applying for language immersion courses in France or Spain, we ask that you provide the contact information for your language teacher. The language Teacher Recommendation form can be accessed via the student portal and should be completed by your French or Spanish teacher. It asks the teacher to estimate your language level.

Language Writing Sample

For students applying for language immersion courses in France or Spain, an additional 500-word statement in French or Spanish is required. This statement should outline your interest in furthering your language skills and what you hope to gain from your Oxbridge experience.
