As engines of innovation and the advancement of human endeavour, universities are unparalleled in society. Higher education has the power to transform the lives of talented young people from every background.

Working with pupils, teachers, families and communities in Hub and Link Schools, OxNet seeks to take university learning directly into schools, bringing cutting-edge research into the classroom. It focuses intensively both on regional mobility and on subject, seeking to support and encourage young people to make successful applications to competitive universities from all regions of the UK and across a diverse range of subjects.
