    Yes! Sent my app off on 15th September, applying to Hertford!
    I thought you were applying to Harris Manchester! I'd say good luck, but I suppose we're competition now

    Does this age limit also apply to other courses?
    I will be 17 when I start studying (I turn 18 in the following January so I thought it would not be such a big deal)
    I am applying for PPE and I am also an international student.

    I doubt it, I know a girl who applied for PPE a year early, but chose to defer her place, but presumably she could've not deferred

    Hertford is my first choice, BUT because I'm over 21, I am likely to be given an interview at HM anyway if I am lucky enough to get an offer I loved Hertford at the Open day though!

    Ahh okay, I'm sure you'll get an interview, nearly all applicants for Chinese do!

    No longer than 2000 words, but there doesn't appear to be a minimum length. However, the college taking your application will specify if they expect a minimum length
    Well.... ****... The essays I wanted to send are both 4500 words... Some cutting to do.

    Just curious - is there a particular reason you say that you are likely to be sent to Harris Manchester for interview? Cause I decided against applying there, but you make it sound a but like they try to direct all mature applicants back to HM, no matter where they applied.

    Everyone gets a minimum of 2 interviews - one with college tutors and one with course tutors (I THINK that's correct, please correct me if that's not totally right!) but it's common for people to get extra interviews at other colleges if they feel you are Oxford material but would better suit a different college.
    From what I heard on the Open Day, mostly everyone over 21 gets an interview at HM because they specialise in mature students and so have particular facilities specific and appropriate to their needs that the other colleges might not.

    BrasenoseAdm can probably correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm FAIRLY sure of this.

    Sent my application for PPE at Merton two hours ago. I am nervous.
    Applying from Germany.
    I am also German and applying to Merton for PPE. :-) Darf ich fragen, was du so für Abifächer und Noten hast? Ich habe keine Ahnung, wie streng die mit dem Abitur sind. (Kannst mir auch gerne eine private Nachricht schreiben :-) )

    If they're applying now, then they're applying for entry in October 2016 so second term would start in January 2017?
