Oxford and Cambridge Explained and Student Life
These sessions are mainly aimed at S5 students, but can also be helpful for younger years considering Oxford or Cambridge. We warmly encourage parents to attend too.
The Oxford and Cambridge Explained presentation covers all aspects of student life and the admissions process for the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, including course choice, the college system, tutorial teaching, admissions tests and interviews. We aim to leave students feeling much better informed about what applying to, and studying at, Oxford or Cambridge would involve, as well as to break down any misconceptions about that might deter students from making an application. The sessions will be delivered by Undergraduate Admissions & Outreach staff from both universities and where possible supported by current students who will share their experiences.
The session is open to young people and their parents across Glasgow and if you wish to attend please click on the link to register for the event.
