Application Process

Applicants must first have been accepted by a department or faculty of the University of Oxford before any college may consider them.

You are advised to research the application process on the University website.

Applications are considered for any of the courses in which Green Templeton College offers admission. Preference will normally be given to applicants whose area of study overlaps with the academic interests of the college’s fellows.

Applications are usually considered by the Senior Tutor and Tutor for Admissions, who will look particularly at your academic ability as reflected by previous university qualifications or other tests such as the GMAT score.

The Senior Tutor and Tutor for Admissions will also consider your potential contribution to the college community. Green Templeton admits a diverse mix of students and central to the character of the college is the pursuit of an independent intellectual agenda focusing on human and social welfare, and all students are encouraged to adopt this.

The college aims to admit a certain number of students each year spread across the range of subjects which it accepts, and this determines the number of offers which can be made to applicants. Therefore it may not be possible to make offers to applicants whose applications are received late in the admissions round, as targets may have been reached.

The possession of competitively-won funding may be taken into account as an indicator of an applicant’s academic merit and potential. Preference may be given to current or past students of the college who meet the selection criteria described above.

Please note that any offer of a place will be subject to satisfactory completion of the financial declaration form that will be sent to the applicant as part of the offer of a place. Please consult this guidance for more details.

The College follows the University guidance on requests for deferrals.
