Indian UG Students Attracted By Oxford
Oxford University has been successful in attracting Indian students. It now, opens doors for more and more Undergraduates of India than ever before.


In order to draw more Indian students the Oxford University's Exeter College comes forward with an idea of having a tour to India, visiting some of the high schools and colleges across Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore.

Academic dean of the Exeter College Dr.Chris Ballinger said that "Exeter is the fourth oldest college of the University which has aimed at schools and junior college students and their parents in order to spread about how to apply to be an Undergraduate students at Oxford University".

Moreover, the dean is also meeting principals of some of the top schools situated in Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore in order to attract more Indian students, who wish to be undergraduates at Oxford University as well as those who are studying their class 12 under CBSE or ICSE.

Oxford altered its undergraduate admissions criteria in the 2012-13 application cycle to accept undergraduate school leavers from India who have obtained the Class XII qualification, with either the CBSE or ICSE boards. "We did this because we want to ensure that we can accept applications from the widest possible range of well-qualified applicants," said Dr Ballinger.

He added that "I aim to increase understanding among Indian schoolchildren, and their teachers and advisers and parents, of the benefits of studying at Oxford as an undergraduate, our criteria for admission to undergraduate degree courses, and the process by which students can apply to be undergraduates at Oxford University".

This would be an awesome opportunity for those students who are wishing to join Oxford University. This seems to be the right time because, its time for admissions.
