Students listen at an outreach event

Thinking about Oxford... for BAME applicants

Worcester College are launching a new programme supporting Black and Minority Ethnic applicants in making their applications to Oxford University. The programme is open to BAME students in years 11 and 12 studying at state (non fee-paying) schools anywhere in the UK. 

The programme consists of a number of visits to Worcester College, and will focus on different aspects of the application process, including: guidance on how to choose a subject and which subjects lead to which careers, support with personal statements, interviews, reading around the subject etc. Students can apply in year 11 or year 12 - we hope that year 11s will stay on to complete the year 12 part of the programme next year. There is no cost to the programme, and travel expenses to and from Worcester College to attend the events will be covered by the College. 

 

The programme:

For those who are in year 11 this year:

How do I choose a subject? (21st July 2020, for those interested in the sciences; 22nd July 2020 for those interested in humanities / social science subjects)

Open Day residential (17th - 18th September 2020)

(from September onwards we anticipate that those who joined the programme in year 11 will continue on with the year 12 part of the programme)

 

For those who are in year 12 this year:

Making a competitive application to university (16th April 2020)

Subject choice and potential careers (21st July 2020 for those interested in the sciences; 22nd July 2020 for those interest in humanities / social science subjects)
