Professor Louise Richardson, Vice President of the University of Oxford, said that this is a huge change in the admissions process of the University of Oxford. The school's staff, colleges and departments have fully cooperated to accelerate the implementation of the new policy and ensure that outstanding students across the country know their opportunities for admission to Oxford University Is fair.
Oxford University's general offer conditions are between A * A * A-AAA, depending on the selected subject. However, under the new plan, grades can be reduced to ABB.
Prior to this, private school principals said that although this approach of top universities increased diversity, it also crowded out many private school children and became victims of "social engineering."
Oxford University (English name University of Oxford, English abbreviation Oxford, Chinese abbreviation "Oxford"), located in Oxford, England, is a world-renowned public research university. It adopts the federal system of academies, and it is called "Bull Sword" with Cambridge University. It is also a "G5 Super Elite University" with Cambridge University, University College London, Imperial College, and London School of Economics and Political Science.
From 2020, 250 public students will begin to enjoy tuition and accommodation free in Oxford. Among them, 50 offer places will be given to refugees and government foster children, and they will receive A-Level background admission offers instead of regular standard offers.
At present, British universities are facing increasing pressure from regulators, hoping that top universities can accept more students from ethnic minorities and disadvantaged backgrounds. Last year, Labour MP David Lammy publicly criticized Oxford as "white, middle class, southern privilege" exclusively on Twitter. In 2019, the number of Westminster students admitted to Oxford University (49) is higher than that of all black students (48). However, in recent years, many top universities have also begun to adopt “contextual offer” background admissions, and public students from poor areas can be admitted with lower grades. In 2019, the University of Bristol's admission score for poor students dropped to a minimum of C. Starting in September of this year, UCL's admission scores for poor students were also reduced by two levels.
In a statement today, the University of Oxford announced two new projects, called Opportunity Oxford and Foundation Oxford, hoping to increase the diversity of Oxford University campuses. It is currently entirely funded by Oxford University, but I believe they will soon consider using donations. funds. Foundation Oxford has 50 places open to students from disadvantaged backgrounds with "high academic potential", as well as refugee and government foster children. Candidates need to pass the 'Foundation year' before they can be accepted into the undergraduate course at Oxford University. Opportunity Oxford has 200 places, and the project will last two weeks. The goal is to meet the performance requirements of poor students who need to learn "transitional assistance" from college.
It is expected that by 2023, 25% of the new students enrolled in Oxford University will be children from the most disadvantaged background in the UK, currently 15%.
Oxford University reserves a quarter of the place for poor students. As soon as this new policy is released, you can boldly imagine that Oxford University, which originally had a low admission rate, will increase the difficulty of applying through normal channels. Not much to say, little friends, work hard!
The two new plans of Oxford University are undoubtedly the gospel of Hanmen students. They are tailor-made for bright and excellent students with low family income, and provide them with some practical help.
good news! good news! Oxford University's admissions policy has changed dramatically now. How can you miss such good benefits? Oxford University will be recruiting students from disadvantaged backgrounds with lower grades. This is unprecedented in Oxford's 900-year history! Oxford University plans that by 2023, a quarter of the students enrolled will be children from poor families. This means a radical overhaul of Oxford's admissions process, but it is also accompanied by the dissatisfaction of many rejected middle class, private school principals and private school students.
