In 2002, the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra was appointed Orchestra in Residence at the University of Oxford in an agreement which has been renewed until 2017 between the Chancellor, Masters and Scholars of the University and the Orchestra. This Residency offers training and performing opportunities to Oxford University students.

Professional orchestral experience and training is available to string instrumentalists who are enrolled full-time at the Faculty of Music. Candidates selected by audition will be invited to play in up to four concerts with the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra and will receive coaching and an award of £100 per concert.
This award provides the opportunity for an outstanding soloist or a chamber ensemble to perform in the Sheldonian Theatre prior to an OPO evening concert. The scheme is available to full-time students of the University of Oxford, and is open to all instrumentalists and singers.
