About the conference
The Oxford Muslim Access Conference (OMAC) is an annual conference, dedicated to supporting students who are thinking of applying to Oxford and other competitive universities. Through a series of interactive talks, subject workshops, and panel discussions, OMAC aims to demystify the Oxbridge application process, shed light on Muslim experiences at Oxford, and tackle the unique cultural and faith barriers faced by Muslim students.
OMAC 2019 was kindly hosted by Clifford Chance in Canary Wharf, London, and sponsored by Oxford University, Aziz Foundation, and COSARAF. The Conference hosted over 100 year 11 and 12 students from over 90 state and faith schools across the country.
The day included some inspiring speeches and Q&A sessions with Oxford’s Head of Admissions, Samina Khan, Lady Margaret Hall’s Senior Outreach Officer, Marrium Khan, and Oxford’s Muslim Chaplain, Sheikh Ibrahim Amin.
This was followed by a student panel, focusing on university and college life, a series of subject workshops, and an alumni panel with Muslim graduates now working in a variety of fields.
The brothers and sisters breakout sessions at the end of the day provided a safe space for students to talk through concerns such as balancing faith, wellbeing, and moving away from home for the first time.
