Schools & Outreach Programme

All school visits, tours, and events are currently cancelled due to developments with coronavirus (Covid-19). We look forward to welcoming schools and students to St Hilda's as soon as possible.

At St Hilda’s College we are committed to providing young people with the opportunity to study at a world class institution, regardless of background. To do this, St Hilda's has approached outreach with three main aims:

  • Encourage students to achieve their best
  • Inspire young people to apply to the University of Oxford
  • Increase diversity

St Hilda’s is particularly keen to work with state schools and colleges to help students make informed decisions about higher education and applying to university, including the University of Oxford.

Applying to university can be a daunting prospect and here at St Hilda's College, we want to make sure that every student has the right support and information. The colleges of Oxford each have a “link” region to make it easier for young people and schools to establish a first point of contact. St Hilda’s link region is Surrey.

We have a number of visits and events available for students to attend.
