This seminar is the first in a five-part public seminar series on ‘Student Access to University’, led by the Department of Education.

Access to higher education is a major social issue in the UK as in most countries. This term, the Department of Education will hold a series of five seminars on ‘Student Access to University’ at venues across the University. The series aims to encourage public discussion and move access forward by bringing a research-based treatment to it.

This seminar will be chaired by Rebecca Surender (Pro Vice-Chancellor – Equality and Diversity, University of Oxford). The speakers will include, Jo-Anne Baird (Director of the Department of Education), Samina Khan (Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach, University of Oxford) and Alison Matthews (Deputy Director of Undergraduate Admissions, University of Oxford). A response to the seminar will be given by Karen O’Brien (Head of the Humanities Division, University of Oxford).

The seminar will take place between 5pm-6.30pm. Registration is required, visit here for further information.
