The Oxford Pakistan Access Programme (the “Access Programme”) addresses the underrepresentation in Oxford of both British Pakistani students and Pakistani students ordinarily resident in Pakistan, at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The Access Programme supports a range of activities, both in the UK and in Pakistan, to encourage British Pakistani students and students ordinarily resident in Pakistan to apply to Oxford, and to support them in their applications.
This includes an engagement initiative, which arranges for Oxford students and alumni to speak with prospective applicants in schools in the UK with a high number of students of Pakistani origin, as well as virtual engagement with schools in Pakistan. The Access Programme also runs a direct engagement initiative with schools in the UK which have a high proportion of students of Pakistani origin, as well as with schools in Pakistan, delivering talks and workshops around the year to encourage and assist applications.
The Access Programme is also working with the Oxford’s Undergraduate Admissions & Outreach team to develop and deliver materials that support the application to Oxford of Pakistani students ordinarily resident in Pakistan.
If you would like to support the Access Programme or volunteer, please contact Haroon Zaman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OPP and Project EduAccess have partnered to launch two mentoring programmes for Pakistani learners. The Programmes aim to provide mentorship and increase access to the knowledge, networks, and resources needed for Pakistani students to study at top UK universities.
