Lincoln College Study Days

This year we are 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. You should have an interest in a relevant subject area of the Humanities, and the course is particularly suited to those interested in History, English, Modern Languages, Ancient History and Archaeology.

The programme is designed and delivered by academics and staff at Lincoln College, Oxford, with great opportunities to engage with Tutors and current students. It will give you a real flavour of life at Lincoln and what to expect from studying at Oxford University. It will also help you to develop relevant academic skills such as essay planning and critical thinking, and the admissions workshop and mock interview will help you to make a competitive application to Oxford when the time comes.

The application deadline of Monday 13 June at 12 noon has now passed.

Our Study Days have two subject options: History and the Ancient World orĀ Languages and Literature

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

History and the Ancient World: August 14th to 16th

Languages and Literature: August 18th to 20th

Accommodation will be provided free of charge, onsite, in Lincoln College rooms. We can also offer a travel bursary.
