what does 2022 admissions round mean?

In a reply to an email I sent about applying to oxford university used this phrase "2022 admissions round". I know what admissions round means but do you think they meant those who have already applied and are starting this year? Or the next year that hasn't applied yet, to start in 2023?

Maybe the latter because you must apply to oxford in october?

A quick search of Oxford uni's web site shows lots of more explicit references to that term.

For example:
"the 2021 admissions round (for 2022 entry)"
"2021 admissions round (applications 2021 for 2022 entry)"
"2021 Admissions Round (for 2022 Entry)"
"2022 admissions round with the deadline for submission of applications to Oxford being 15th October 2021"

Whilst the last example above bucks the trend, generally speaking they're referring to the October in which applicants apply.

So your reference to the "2022 admissions round" almost certainly means those applying in October 2022 for entry in 2023 (or 2024 if they defer).
