Access & Outreach
Pembroke believes it is vital to make efforts to ensure that our world-class education is available to all those with the academic ability and potential to take full advantage of it.
We recognise that there is much work to be done to make this a reality for all prospective students in the UK and beyond.
Our approach is to use an academically intensive, subject driven programme to inspire, and to stretch and challenge those who take part, particularly those from disadvantaged and non-traditional University application backgrounds.
All pupils are encouraged to think about and engage with subjects they may not have considered studying, and to raise their academic attainment by taking part in sustained intellectually challenging programmes.
We also place great value on developing links with teachers and providing them with support and useful resources.
Led by our Access Fellow, Dr Peter Claus, Pembroke's outreach work is targeted at areas of London and the North West of England, while other Oxford Colleges have special connections with other regions (to find out which College is linked with a particular area see the Oxford University admissions pages).
If you are a teacher at one of Pembroke's link schools and would like enquire about school visits or other access opportunities please contact Kirsty Simpson (Admissions and Access Officer).
Read stories from our students and alumni who have been involved in Pembroke's outreach efforts, and those who came up through the Pembroke Access Programme and how it changed their academic trajectories.

Our objective is to promote an academic approach that ensures that young people are prepared for intensive learning in competitive universities more generally and encouraged to go beyond the school curriculum.
