    I am an incoming junior in America and am wondering how to apply to Oxford for PPE. Can someone walk me through the process of applying as an international?

    Complete and submit UCAS form by 15 October.
    Remember you have five university choices.
    Remember Oxford is interested in a personal statement that illustrates your interest in the subject rather than your extra curricular activities.

    There's plenty of other information here as well as on the UCAS site:

    Check out the Oxford website - plenty of info there.

    Make sure you expect to have the ACT/SAT and AP/SAT2 scores to qualify. Write a good PS, find a good teacher to write your reference and focus on studying for your course's aptitude test - the TSA. Figure out where you will take the TSA.

    Getting invited for an interview will depend primarily on the TSA score.

    I did some work for a professor at my local UC. Do you think I can submit their recommendation rather than my teachers?

    That is not how it works

    UCAS references for students entering from School /FE are expected to provide a reference from their current place of study , same if you change courses ...

    please for pities sake put any of the stupid patronage and bribery things that the US considers normal out of you mind
