Many congratulations on receiving an offer of a place on your chosen course at the University of Oxford.

Keep in touch

Please contact the Academic and Admissions Officer if your contact details change (for example, if you provided a university email address on application to the University of Oxford and have since graduated). It is especially important to keep your personal email address up to date, as this is how St Antony’s College will communicate with you prior to your arrival.
