Oxford Acceptance Rates 2023 – The Definitive Guide

As you may know, the University of Oxford is one of the hardest universities to get into in the world. With world-leading teaching and a rich history, over 20,000 people apply each year for one of less than 3,000 available places to study. In this guide, we will take a look at the data behind last year's application cycle to understand the 2023 offer and acceptance rates for each of the undergraduate courses Oxford offers.

The University of Oxford is one of the most prestigious universities in the world. With 20,000+ applicants each year competing for a very limit number of places, we know that the average chance of getting a place is very low compared to other universities. 

This information is measured through rates for offers and acceptances, something we like to call success rates. These rates give us an amazing insight into which courses at Oxford are the easiest and most difficult to get into, as well as understanding how many applicants got their place in general

In this guide, we’ll be exploring Oxford’s Admissions Statistics report to understand the acceptance rates of every undergraduate course taught there. Let’s get started!

University of Oxford Acceptances Rates - overall

For those who don’t know, a university’s “acceptance rate” is the percentage of applicants who are admitted to study at said university in a given year. This is calculated as: 

Number of admitted applicants/Total number of applicants

While acceptance rates are important, it’s also important to consider a university’s offer rate, being the percentage of applicants who receive an offer. This figure will always be a bit higher, as applicants who receive an offer may not actually attend the university if they reject their offer or do not meet the required grades. 

When it comes to Oxbridge applications (Oxford & Cambridge), many find the offer rates more important as actually getting your offer is usually the hardest part of the application. As you’ll see in the data below, most applicants who receive their offer will end up getting their place. 

With that in mind, let’s first take a look at the overall acceptance rates at Oxford for the past few years: 

Oxford Acceptance Rates (2019 - 2022)

2022

Applicants: 23,819

Offers: 3,645

Acceptances: 3,271

Offer Rate: 15.3%

Acceptance Rate: 13.7%

2021

Applicants: 24,819

Offers: 3,645

Acceptances: 3,271

Offer Rate: 14.7%

Acceptance Rate: 13.2%

2020

Applicants: 23,414

Offers: 3,932

Acceptances: 3,695

Offer Rate: 16.8%

Acceptance Rate: 15.8%

2019

Applicants: 23,026

Offers: 3,895

Success Rate: 3,286

Offer Rate: 16.9%

Acceptance Rate: 14.3%

As we can see, Oxford’s statistics have remained fairly consistent, except for the notable drop in offers and acceptances in 2021 (likely influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic). However, acceptance and offer rates have remained within the 13% – 16% range during this time.

What Are Cambridge's Acceptance Rates?

Compared to Oxford, the University of Cambridge usually has a higher offer and acceptance rate in general as the tend to admit more students. This means that Cambridge is slightly less competitive. Here are the statistics for the 2022 Entry admissions cycle: 

2022

Applicants: 22,470

Offers: 4,238

Acceptances: 3,544

Offer Rate: 18.9%

Acceptance Rate: 15.8%

The acceptance rate at Cambridge was roughly 2% higher in 2022. However, Cambridge’s success rates have been more inconsistent than Oxford’s, as they reported offer rates of over 23% in both 2019 and 2020. This may partly be due to a sharper increase in applicants during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

You can see all of the important statistics for Cambridge in our Cambridge Acceptance Rates Guide.

These statistics cover all admissions at Oxford, so they don’t necessarily represent your chances of success on your specific course. Acceptance rates tend to be very different across different degrees, so let’s review the 5 courses at Oxford with the most applicants.

Less than 16% of Oxford applicants were offered a place, but we got 57% of our students into Oxbridge.

If you want the best chance of getting into Oxford, enrol on an Oxbridge Programme to receive industry-leading support for your application. Each of our students have access to comprehensive resources, one-to-one tuition sessions, intensive courses and much more, all designed to give them the best possible chance of success.

Oxford Acceptances Rates - Top Five Subjects

There are the five most popular courses taught by Oxford ranked by the number of applicants (based on 2022 Entry admissions). How difficult are they to get into? Let’s find out: 

Oxford PPE Acceptance Rate

PPE stands for Philosophy, Politics & Economics and is one of Oxford’s most iconic courses due to the amount of famous alumni it produced. It’s not a surprise that was the most applied for Oxford degree in 2022, but with this level of notoriety, one would expect PPE to be highly competitive, so let’s see:

2022

Applicants: 1,997

Offers: 268

Acceptances: 236

Offer Rate: 13.4%

Acceptance Rate: 11.8%

Seeing as the course had nearly 2,000 applicants, the offer and acceptance rates are fairly low, although no where near the lowest that we will see at Oxford. 

Oxford Mathematics Acceptance Rate

Another popular course in the UK, Mathematics at Oxford very in-demand. How do the success rates look?

2022

Applicants: 1,883

Offers: 187

Acceptances: 173

Offer Rate: 9.9%

Acceptance Rate: 9.2%

As we can see, these success rates are much lower than PPE, although we can see that there’s a smaller different between the offer and acceptance rate. This means that there were fewer applicants who didn’t attend Oxford after receiving an offer.

Oxford Medicine Acceptance Rate

With Medicine being one of the most popular courses across the UK, it’s not surprising to see it in among top five at Oxford, but how competitive was it?

2022

Applicants: 1,864

Offers: 161

Acceptances: 148

Offer Rate: 8.6%

Acceptance Rate: 7.9%

With how competitive medicine is across the whole country, it’s no surprise to see success rates this low. Interestingly, these rates are over 5% lower than the success rates for Cambridge medicine in the same year, mostly due to the fact that Oxford has a much smaller cohort of 148 students versus Cambridge’s 271. 

Oxford Law Acceptance Rate

Law is another of the most popular courses in the UK, generally seeing more applicants than Medicine overall. However, at Oxford, it’s in fourth place, but is it more competitive?

2022

Applicants: 1,806

Offers: 203

Acceptances: 191

Offer Rate: 11.2%

Acceptance Rate: 10.6%

Oxford sent out more Law offers and accepted more applicants into the course than Medicine, meaning its success rates are noticeably higher. While it’s still not easy to get in, you may have a slighter better chance if you’re applying to Law. These rates are also slightly lower than Cambridge Law, which boasts an 11.8% acceptance rate from a cohort only slightly bigger than Oxford’s.

Oxford Economics & Management Acceptance Rate

Economics is another of the most popular courses in the UK, and Oxford’s take has a unique spin, being both an Economics and Management course. How difficult is it to get onto this course? 

2022

Applicants: 1,724

Offers: 94

Acceptances: 84

Offer Rate: 5.5%

Acceptance Rate: 4.9%

Economics & Management is one of the most competitive courses at Oxford due to its very small cohort size of under 100 students. This is unusual for a major course like this, but it goes to show that you’re application is going to have to really stand out to be apart of the those 5% of successful applicants. 

All of these courses are pretty competitive, meaning applicants need to work hard to stand out from the 1,000+ other prospective students in a given year. But what about the other courses Oxford offers? Some of these have far fewer applicants, so are they less competitive? Let’s take a look!

Oxford Acceptances Rates - What Can We Learn?

Before we continue, it’s important to note that all of this data and more can be found in the Oxford Admissions Statistical Report for 2022 admissions, as well the corresponding public Tableau page. If you want to explore all the data further, be sure to check out these documents. 

With that in mind, let’s look at some of the most important and interesting details we can learn from this data.

Oxford's Most Competitive & Least Competitive Courses

If you’re undecided about what you want to study, you may be keen to learn which courses are the easiest and hardest to get into. Bear in mind that no course at Oxford is “easy” to get into, but some certainly are less competitive due to fewer applicants or more places.

You should apply to the subject that you’re most interested in, but having a better understanding of these things may still influence your decision somewhat, so let’s take a look:

Hardest Oxford Courses To Get Into

Firstly, let’s look at the courses with lowest offer and acceptance rates:

Lowest Offer Rates At Oxford 2022

CourseApplicantsOffersOffer Rate
Mathematics & Statistics20883.8%
Economics & Management1,724945.5%
Computer Science875536.1%
Physics & Philosophy180137.2%
Medicine1,8641618.6%

Lowest Acceptance Rates At Oxford 2022

CourseApplicantsAcceptancesAcceptance Rate
Mathematics & Statistics20852.4%
Economics & Management1,724844.9%
Computer Science875445.0%
Physics & Philosophy180116.1%
Mathematics & Computer Science633467.3%

This data shows that Mathematics & Statistics is the most competitive course at Oxford, with a staggeringly low 3.8% offer rate and 2.4% acceptance rate – the lowest of any Oxbridge course in 2022. However, this is partly due to it it being a more niche course combination with fewer places.

The same cannot be said for some of the other courses on this list, including very popular courses like Medicine, Computer Sciences and – the second most competitive course at Oxford – Economics & Management. Being one of the most applied for Oxford courses, E&M’s success rates are held back by the very limited number of places available on the course. 

Easiest Oxford Courses To Get Into

On the opposite end, let’s look at the courses with the highest offer and acceptance rates:

Highest Offer Rates At Oxford 2022

CourseApplicantsOffersOffer Rate
Music1749051.7%
Classics & Modern Languages331545.5%
Modern Languages & Linguistics883944.3%
Modern Languages36315743.3%

Highest Acceptance Rates At Oxford 2022

Classics & Modern Languages331442.4%
Theology & Religion1134640.7%
Modern Languages & Linguistics883539.8%
Modern Languages36314339.4%

Typically, courses with higher success rates are more niche with fewer applicants. This is certainly true here, with none of the entries hitting more than 400 applicants. 

Music tops the list here with the highest offer and acceptance rates seen across both universities in 2022, being the only course to send offers to more than half of its applicants. Material and Earth Sciences are the only STEM courses to appear on the lists for either university, likely due to their much more specialised subjects. 

This information is incredibly useful for those planning on applying to any of these subjects, but let’s look at a few more general data points to see what we can learn about how Oxford tackles their admissions process.

Oxford Acceptance Rates: State Vs Private School

One major talking point surrounding Oxbridge admissions has been the differences between admissions of students from State/Maintained Schools and Private/Independent Schools, as well as the proportionality compared to student numbers in the UK. Previously there were complaints about how many applicants from state schools were being admitted, but it’s now standard to see a much higher percentage of state school applicants being admitted over private school.

Oxford State School Application Statistics 2022

Applicants: 9,965

% of Total Applicants: 68.4%

Offers: 1,851

% of Total Offers: 66.0%

Acceptances: 1,678

% of Total Acceptances: 64.5%

Acceptance Rate: 17.0%

Oxford Private School Application Statistics 2022

Applicants: 3,855

% of Total Applicants: 26.5%

Offers: 815

% of Total Offers: 29.0%

Acceptances: 785

% of Total Acceptances: 30.2%

Acceptance Rate: 20.0%

This data only covers home applicants and excludes 5.1% of applicants from other backgrounds. From the data, we can see that state school applicants outnumber private schools by around 15% in each metric. This is to be expected, since state school applicants far outnumber private schools in the UK, but it is also worth noting that private school applicants had a 3% higher acceptance rate overall. 

There are a number of reasons as to why this may be the case, but at least we can we can dispel the myth that “No one at Oxbridge is from State Schools”

Oxford Acceptance Rates: International Applications

Although there’s a financial incentive for universities to admit more international applications, overseas applicants are generally in for a rougher time when applying to Oxbridge. This could be for a number of reasons, but it seems that both universities generally have a preference to admit those living in the UK. 

Below are the overall figures for UK, EU and Non-EU applicants in 2022:

Oxford UK Applications 2022

Applicants: 14,569

% of Total Applicants: 61.2%

Offers: 2,806

% of Total Offers: 77.0%

Acceptances: 2,596

% of Total Acceptances: 79.4%

Acceptance Rate: 18.0%

Oxford EU Applications 2022

Applicants: 1,787

% of Total Applicants: 7.5%

Offers: 163

% of Total Offers: 4.5%

Acceptances: 124

% of Total Acceptances: 3.8%

Acceptance Rate: 7.0%

Oxford Non-EU Applications 2022

Applicants: 7,463

% of Total Applicants: 31.3%

Offers: 676

% of Total Offers: 18.5%

Acceptances: 551

% of Total Acceptances: 16.8%

Acceptance Rate: 7.0%

Here, we can see that UK applicants made up the vast majority of applications offers and acceptances. When combining all international applicants, they made up 38.8% of applicants, 23.0% of offer holders and 20.6% of accepted students, just over 1/5. 

We can see this disparity most in the difference in acceptance rates, with UK applicants having an acceptance rate of 18% and non-UK applicants having just 7.0%. While Oxford accepts applicants from most countries in the world, there are a few that stand out on top in terms of applicants and admissions: 

Top 10 Countries For International Oxford Admissions (2020 - 2022) - Applications

CountryApplications (2020-2022)

Top 10 Countries for International Oxford Admissions (2020 - 2022) - Admitted Students

Poland7410.8%
Germany676.9%
India653.6%
Romania61NA (Data Unavailable)
Australia55NA (Data Unavailable)
France537.6%

As you can see, over this 3-year period, the countries with the most applicants and admitted students are roughly the same, with a few outliers. 

The countries at the top are all ones that you would expect to see bringing in lots of applications, including China and the United States of America, although Singapore is also a major contributor to Oxbridge applications (Singapore applicants had the best success rate for both Oxford and Cambridge applicants, according to the data available). 

One thing that remains consistent between Oxford and Cambridge international applications is that these larger countries that bring in the most applications usually have very low success rates, as the number of admitted students doesn’t tend to be proportional to how many apply. This goes to show just how competitive international Oxford applications can be. 

The country with the lowest success rate on this list was India, with just 3.6% of its 1820 applicants being admitted. While applicants from India should still apply to Oxford if you are certain that you want to study there, it’s important to consider these success rates so that you can work to make your application truly stand out or seek support from an external source. 

Now that you have a better sense of the success rates at Oxford, you should use this data to help you in the application process. While it may be helpful to consider when choosing your course, it’s always a better idea to choose the course that you’re more interested in as having a genuine desire to study will elevate your application, especially during the interviews.

No matter how high or low the acceptance rate is on your chosen course, it’s still important that you put as much effort as you can into your application, as it’s still highly competitive to get into any Oxford or Cambridge course. Even in the least competitive courses at Oxbridge, you have a less than 50% chance to be admitted, so your application needs to be up to the Oxbridge standard either way. 

If you want to learn more about the Oxford admissions process, be sure to explore our wide huge of guides that cover everything from college selection to interviews. If you want to go even further, explore our Oxbridge Programmes to learn how you can enrol and receive the most comprehensive and effective Oxbridge application support around. We’ve achieved a 57% success rate, meaning we can more than triple your chances of success. Either way, we wish you the best of luck with your Oxford application!

Less than 16% of Oxford applicants were offered a place, but we got 57% of our students into Oxbridge.

If you want the best chance of getting into Oxford, enrol on an Oxbridge Programme to receive industry-leading support for your application.
