    I'm hesitating between:
    "To be accepted in" and "to be accepted to".
    The sentence is as follows: "My aim is to be eventually accepted in/ accepted to the Oxford University."
    I have also found "to be admitted by"... but it somehow doesn't sound correct to me.
    Thanks a lot in advance for your help! :)

    ... accepted at ...

    Attention - pas d'article défini -> accepted at Oxford University.
    Je viens de voir le poste d'Oddmania -> yes "get into X university".

    Je dirais les deux! Accepted into Oxford University (parce qu'il y a à la fois la notion de déplacement, de progrès et d'intériorité). Cela dit, je pense que ce serait plus naturel de dire ...to get into Oxford University dans votre cas.
