An access initiative placing universities at the heart of local communities
What is oxnet?
OxNet is an Access initiative run collaboratively between participating colleges at the University of Oxford, led by Pembroke College, other HE institutions across the United Kingdom, and secondary schools acting as "hubs" in London, the North West and the North East of England. It is unapologetically academic in its focus, and has had significant impact in the local communities in which it has worked since 2008.
OxNet's national network of hub schools work with link schools in their respective areas of the UK. Each hub employs a full time OxNet Coordinator, who is responsible for overseeing OxNet activities in their region. This means that the University of Oxford has a direct relationship with our partner schools, based around several years of working together and tailoring our programmes to local pupils' interests and needs.
OxNet runs intensive courses, involving a mixture of Study Days, Seminar Series, Easter Conferences, Summer Schools and Twilight Talks. For more information, please click on the "Programmes and Courses" tab.
