    About the Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA) Oxford

    The Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA) Oxford is a 2-hour pre-interview test for applicants to undergraduate courses at the University of Oxford. It is designed to help tutors assess whether candidates have the skills and aptitudes needed to study the following courses:

    • Economics and Management
    • Experimental Psychology
    • Geography
    • Philosophy and Linguistics
    • Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE)
    • Psychology and Linguistics
    • Psychology and Philosophy.

    Because these subjects require a range of abilities, and candidates come from a wide variety of subject backgrounds, admissions decisions are complex. The TSA helps admissions tutors make an informed selection.
