Play for OURFC
If you are interested in playing rugby at Oxford, including potentially representing OURFC, this section of the website outlines what is involved and invites you to send us more information about your academic and rugby background.
To play for OURFC you must be admitted as an undergraduate or postgraduate student on a University course, and be matriculated as a member of an Oxford college.
All courses are subject to strict admissions procedures with fixed deadlines (for undergraduate courses a year ahead of possible admission) and typically requiring extensive documentation. Admission is competitive, with no special dispensations for sportsmen.
If you would like to tackle the challenge of becoming one of Oxford's scholar athletes please look first at the University's undergraduate or postgraduate websites to see which course(s) may fit your qualifications and interests. Other key details will be the length, scheduling and cost of programmes.
OURFC has a recruitment group, including the Club captain and senior academics, set up to support potential players. It offers advice on applications for courses, chances to meet existing players, and some scholarship funding.
If, having looked at information on courses, you would like advice on possible playing and admission prospects please complete the following form, giving our recruitment group information on your rugby and academic backgrounds. A member of the recruitment group will respond as soon as possible. All information will be confidential to that group.
