Blackfriars Hall welcomes applications for undergraduate study from mature students ("Mature student" means 21 or over at the start of October in your first year.) in Theology, Philosophy and PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics). Our applicants are men and women from every kind of school, college, and background, from all parts of the British Isles and overseas.
If you want to study at Oxford, you need to apply a year before the start date of your course by completing the online application form at www.ucas.com. Applications open in early September, and the deadline is 6pm UK time on 15 October every year.
You need to nominate Blackfriars Hall as your college choice by selecting campus code P on the form. Full details of the application process can be found on the University Website. Some subjects require applicants to submit one or two pieces of written work, and many subjects require candidates to sit a short written test; further details are set out on the University website.
Where asked for, written work should be sent to the College to reach us by no later than 10 November. As we cannot return it, you may wish to submit a (legible) photocopy. The work should be clearly written or typed. If, because of your circumstances, you don't have examples of recent written work available, please write to the Admissions Officer as soon as possible, so that we can suggest alternatives.
If you are considering applying to Blackfriars, we encourage you to contact the Regent, Fr Simon Gaine, in order to find out more.
The Hall has a scholarship reserved for students reading for a second undergraduate degree in Theology and Religion, Philosophy and Theology, or Theology and Oriental Studies. You can find details here.
You can find guidance to help mature students with the application process here.
We welcome enquiries from disabled students. The nature of our old buildings inevitably makes access difficult to some areas, We have various contingency plans which can be brought into effect and we regard problems as challenges to be overcome. Please contact the Academic Administrator, Ms. Lucy Traves, directly and let us know what your needs are: in most cases we can and will meet them.
