Being Human

Being Human: Ancient and Modern Perspectives on Humanity

Is a robot a human? What happens after we die? Why do humans tell stories? Would you rather be free or safe? Would it be better if we all spoke the same language?

The Faculty of Classics, Corpus Christi College and Worcester College invite students in Year 12 at state schools in the North West, Yorkshire and the Humber to join Oxford academics in thinking through some of the modern world's biggest questions - by looking back to the ancient world. 

Being Human is a university preparation programme for Year 12 students in the North West, Yorkshire and Humber who are thinking about studying the humanities subjects at university level. It is made up of five seminars and a residential stay in Oxford, and also comprises support with university applications and personal statements. For more information, and to apply, please see the details on the Classics Faculty website.
