This event is free of charge for participants, with accommodation provide in College on the first night.

We are fortunate to be able to offer travel reimbursements of up to £60 per person, if you are travelling from more than 75 minutes away.

The sessions throughout the day will cover topics such as: Financial Support & Bursaries for Students; Myth-busting preconceptions about accessing Oxford; Student life in Oxford beyond academic work; Academic life, applications, and interviews. You will hear from Oxford staff, students and Academics.

When dates are confirmed a dedicated event page, with application form, will be launched. Keep an eye on this page for those updates.

We have tried to find times to suit all parties involved; if students are not sure if they can make the session we strongly recommend that they still sign up so they can receive links and resources sent out after the sessions. You will be automatically allocated to the session that best suits you. For students applying for some joint honours courses, such as Maths and Philosophy, you will be invited to attend both of the relevant sessions.

What do the events involve?

For Year 13s: Tackling nerves head on, we'll provide insight into the interview process, how to prepare, and will go through some interview questions and the kinds of thinking and response that can help students to do well at interview. We will also be joined by some current students in relevant subjects at Oxford and Cambridge to give their perspectives on the process.

For Year 12s: This will introduce attendees to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge and explain what they can offer, whilst breaking down some of the barriers that might stand in the way of students applying. It will also include detailed advice and guidance about how to prepare during Year 12 to make a competitive application to highly-selective universities, such as Oxbridge and the Russell Group. Students need not be certain about applying to Oxbridge in the future!

All events will be a webinar on Zoom - we won't be using cameras or microphones, but there will be a chat and Q&A box for you to ask questions or contribute to any discussion.
