Applying to Study for a BFA

The University of Oxford has one admissions process each year for its undergraduate degree programmes, and an application in 2014 would now be for entry to the Ruskin in 2015.

The next date for applying to study at BFA at the Ruskin is 15th October 2014 when you will need to submit a completed UCAS application form online via UCAS: and then a portfolio to the Ruskin.

Submissions of portfolios must then be delivered to the Ruskin by 12 noon on 7th November 2014. 

The Ruskin offers three Open Days each academic year, when you are welcome to come to Oxford and visit the Ruskin, the Fine Art Department of the University. Attending an Open Day is a good idea, as it offers you an opportunity to meet some of the tutors and students, tour the studios and generally find out more about the school, the BFA course and the admissions process.  The dates are advertised on our website and there is no requirement to book to secure a place:

The attached documents offer guidance on all aspects of the University’s admission process, as it relates to Fine Art undergraduates. 

For more detailed information about the collegiate system, visiting Oxford, academic requirements and student funding, please refer to the Undergraduate Admissions website:
