Undergraduate Admissions

If you are considering applying to Balliol, the pages in this section have a great deal of useful information for you. If you still have questions once you have explored them, please contact the Undergraduate Admissions Team at undergraduate@balliol.ox.ac.uk.

If you are a prospective student or a teacher, and might be interested in participating in an event at Balliol to inform and inspire your journey to higher education, please see our pages on Schools and Outreach.

You can see an overview of the College in our undergraduate prospectus.
