Target Schools

Who we are

Target Schools is Oxford SU's home of student run access work. We're not totally sure how long Target Schools has been around but we know Ed Miliband was once a member... so a while. 

Currently Target Schools Shadowing Days for over 200 Year 12 pupils (16/17 years old) from the UK. This is where a Sixth Former is matched up with and Oxford Undergraduate for a 'day in the life' at the University of Oxford. Its a great way for future students to see what Oxford is really like, and for undergraduates to get involved in access. We match based on the Sixth Former's prefer subject so they can see lectures, department buildings, and even tutorials for that course.

We also run the Oxbuddy messaging service. This is where we match up Sixth Formers with Oxford Students to message each other through a moderate system to ensure everyone's safety.

All of our volunteers are safeguarding training and where appropriate DBS checked.
