UTC-logoUTC stands for university technical college and is an innovative new approach to learning for 14-19 year olds that offers specialist programmes alongside a core curriculum.

Students at UTC Oxfordshire benefit from a more personalised approach to learning than they would have in a larger traditional school.

UTC Oxfordshire could be the right place for you if you want to:

  • Focus your studies on science and/or engineering
  • Learn in a high-tech environment
  • Pursue a career where your skills will be in demand
  • Gain specialist skills and knowledge relevant for today’s high-tech industries but still keep more general options open
  • Be sure of a route into higher education, further education, employment and apprenticeships – whichever your chosen path
  • Move from a secondary school because you are ready for exciting, real-world learning
  • Study in a professional work-like environment
  • Complete assignments during the day, leaving you with spare time to pursue other interests
  • Take responsibility for your learning
  • Learn in a relatively small school and enjoy lots of individual attention
  • Develop wider all round interests, such as in sport, music, art or languages

You’ll work with industry partners such as UK Atomic Energy Authority on a number of projects:
