On the blog this week, we take a look at the exciting Study Day opportunities for budding linguists coming up this summer!
Study Days are a great opportunity for prospective applicants to experience life as an Oxford student for the day. Study Days will always include taster sessions for the subjects which you are interested in studying at university, but often involve information sessions on admissions, a chance to talk to current undergraduates, and a tour of the College.
Study Days are free of charge with some colleges offering additional financial support to attendees. They are open to students at UK state schools, but places are sometimes prioritised by measures of socio-economic disadvantage.
We would very much recommend applying to any of the opportunities below!
Exeter College – Thursday 25th April
Each year, Exeter College hosts a series of subject days for Year 11 and Year 12 students attending UK state schools. These aim to provide tailored support for students interested in exploring a range of subjects at University level.
The College’s Modern Languages Study Day will be taking place on Thursday 25th April.
You can register your interest here. The deadline to sign up is 5pm on Monday 18th March.
