About the AAC.

The Annual Access Conference is the UK’s largest Higher Education access conference for black students of African and Caribbean heritage. Designed specifically by the Oxford African and Caribbean Society, the conference addresses contextual barriers faced by black state-school students from disadvantaged backgrounds when engaging with Oxford and other leading institutions of Higher Education.

The AAC equips the next generation of African and Caribbean students with the tools they need to make confident decisions regarding their future.

A student’s educational experience is not purely academic; it exists as an intricate blend of social, economic and cultural factors that are often missed by our current state-school education system. The AAC was developed to bridge that gap. By leveraging the experiences and understanding of Oxford ACS members we deconstruct Oxford through a highly personalised social lens.

The result is a uniquely interactive conference that explores all the nuances of navigating the Oxford experience as a black state-school student.
