Oxford / Cambridge Explained and Student Life –
Tuesday 13 March 6.30 pm to 8 pm at
North Berwick High School
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 / Cambridge Explained presentation covers all aspects of student life and the admissions process for Oxford or 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 Oxford or Cambridge that might deter students from making an application. The sessions will be delivered by Oxford and Cambridge Undergraduate Admissions & Outreach office staff and where possible supported by current students who will share their experiences.
They have asked that people register at the link below, to give them an idea of numbers for the night.
