Oxford and Cambridge universities (sometimes known together as Oxbridge) are like any other university in the UK in terms of applications. In other words any student can apply for any university in the country. In terms of history and reputation obviously universities can vary. But entry is not denied to anyone. I myself am a graduate from Oxford and then went on to Cambridge to train as a teacher and for both universities I was accepted on the basis of my ability and suitability. Although that was many years ago, the same situation obtains today. As for public schools they are open to any student from any part of the country and in that respect they are called ‘public’ but parents have to pay high fees in order to pay for their children to go there if the students are accepted in the first place.
