Working with Schools

Visits to Oxford

We host a variety of school and college visits at St Catherine’s College throughout the academic year. A typical visit usually involves the following:

  • 'Oxford Explained' Presentation
  • Q & A with current students (during term-time)
  • Tour of College
  • Lunch in Hall

We are very willing to tailor the visits to the needs of your students if at all possible, so please do contact us to discuss ideas (

In-school visits

It may be possible for a representative of the College to visit your school or college to give an 'Oxford Explained' presentation. Please email to enquire.

Regional Links

As part of the University of Oxford’s ongoing commitment to engage with schools, we have developed a programme to simplify communication between the University and all schools in the United Kingdom. Each Oxford college is linked to a Local Authority to ensure that each school has a first point of contact within the University. For more information about the University's Regional Outreach programme, please click here.

St Catherine's College is linked with Northern Ireland. A representative from the College visits Northern Ireland several times each year with the aim of encouraging able students to consider applying to Oxford. Our next visit is likely to be in Spring 2016.

If you are a teacher and would like to discuss whether it is possible for us to visit your school in the future, please email
