Lincoln College Study Days

This year we are again running in-person Study Days, for prospective students in Year 12 from state schools. The programme is designed to support students from non-traditional Oxbridge backgrounds who are on track to do well and potentially make an application to a selective university.

The Study Days will take place in at Lincoln College Oxford on the following dates:

History and the Ancient World: August 6th to 8th

Physics and Engineering: August 8th to 10th

Languages and Literature: August 10th to 12th

For confirmed participants:

We will also provide Breakfast, lunch and dinner in our Dining Hall.
