Astrophoria Foundation Year

Astrophoria Foundation Year logo

The University of Oxford’s Astrophoria Foundation Year is a one-year programme for UK state school students with significant academic potential who have experienced severe personal disadvantage or disrupted education which has resulted in them being unable to meet the academic entry requirements for an Oxford undergraduate degree programme.

The programme is fully funded. Tuition and accommodation fees are covered by the University and students receive a non-repayable bursary for their living costs.

Motivated students will be able to reach their academic potential through this supportive and challenging academic course aimed at developing their skills, self-belief and academic confidence. Students who pass their foundation year course at the required level can progress onto undergraduate study at Oxford without the need to reapply.

English is a participating subject in the Astrophoria Foundation Year. There are available subject pathways in English, Classics and English, and History and English.
