We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the many alumni and friends of Jesus College who have generously supported our access programme and have helped it grow over the years.
Your continued support enables us to deliver our important and life-changing outreach work in London and across Wales. Please click here to be taken to our donation page, where you can select ‘Donate to Access and Outreach’ and make a gift. All donations, no matter the size, have a huge impact on what we can do and the students we can reach. Click on the links below to see how your donation can help.
In addition to making a donation, there are many other ways you can support us too: educational resources, time, and mentoring opportunities are all also hugely valuable to us. Do contact the Access Fellow, Dr Matt Williams if you’d like to discuss how you can assist Access & Outreach at Jesus College.
The Access and Outreach Team
£5 will help pay for one visitor to Jesus College to have lunch with us in Hall. In a typical year we host around 4,000 prospective students. Not all have lunches, but very many do!
£20 will help pay for the access team to visit a school in South London where we work with state schools, primarily in more disadvantaged areas of Lambeth and Wandsworth.
£50 will help pay our way to South Wales where we also frequently visit schools. We make around 50 such visits out of College per year.
£100 will pay for travel and accommodation for one of our undergraduates or postgraduates to visit schools.
£500 will help pay the travel costs of 10 students visiting Oxford for a subject taster day. Every year over 100 students come to our Women in Science taster day.
It will also pay for an individual to attend one of our four access summer schools. This will cover their travel, room and board for a full week of academic activities.
£3,000 covers the salary of an Undergraduate Access Summer Internship. Our undergraduates are given opportunities to earn money and gain essential labour market skills, whilst helping us provide the best access services at Oxford. We will have three such interns for the summer of 2021.
