    You'll need to have very good academic exam results... That's the main thing.

    Expectations? To be the best of the bunch

    I'm not sure how internationals apply, but I'm pretty sure you have to do it through UCAS, which is the application service for British universities.

    You have a point, but that's just a thing we do around here when talking about our country to foreigners we make sure they know what we're talking about to avoid awkward conversations such as
    "Hi, I'm from Hungary."
    "What, you're hungry?"
    "No, I'm from Hungary, that's a country in central Europe"

    i have to say that you have right. it's very anoying to explain all the time that Poland is country again (WWII).

    i will finish high school next year. right now im studying at main ecomonics school in poland (it's a private school which is a part of the economics university)... and i will pass IB ofcourse...

    from Your answers conclude that first i have to past some undergraduate studies, and then try to get to Oxford Buisness School, right?

    I don't think so.. They have undergraduate courses too!!

    You can apply for 2010 via UCAS.

    Firstly, have you started an undergraduate degree in Poland yet? You can't study at the Said Business School as an undergraduate - you might have lectures or tutorials there if you study PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) or E&M (Economics and Management). The SBS mainly offers Masters of various kinds (eg, MBA) and PhDs.

    so what does that mean?

    and i have one more question. does fact that i was helping my father with his company (for a year or two, but unofficialy because it was illegal), changes anything? is that something which i can boast?

    2)http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...nts/index.html - for international applicants generally
    3) Qualifications: "Polish Matura / Swiadectwo Dojrzalosci with 85-90% in all subjects with the relevant subjects taken at the higher (extended) level. " as a minimum.

    i won't pass "Polish Matura", but IB (international one), and there won't be problems to achieve that minimum.

    To clarify, what is your preference - an undergraduate degree or a postgraduate degree?

    In addition to the other links, a couple of other undergraduate degrees that include economics:

    Yes, of course - I'd guess a higher proportion of postgraduates than undergraduates come from outside the UK.
    Yes, a much higher proportion of graduate students (around two thirds) are from outside the UK.

    Yes, I think so. Then you can improve your English even more (though it is already good!), and have more chance of getting in for a postgraduate.

    For social sciences it's almost 75%, actually, (much lower for humanities courses, though, obviously, so on average the percentage is around two thirds, as you say).
