Access and Admissions Officer giving a talk on university

Yorkshire and Humber Roadshow

Year 10 Roadshow (20 - 24 April 2020)

Is higher education right for me? What do I need to get into university? What is university study like? Which A-Levels will lead me to top universities? We're visiting schools across our link areas (Leeds, Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, and Wakefield) to help you find out.

The outreach team at Worcester College will be visiting local schools between Monday 20th and Friday 24th April 2020 on our annual Year 10 roadshow. We will be talking about higher education, A-Level choices, picking the right degree subject, and what it's really like to study at a top university. These events are suitable for any KS4 students thinking about higher education who currently attend non-fee-paying state schools in Leeds, Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield.

Each roadshow event last for around 2 hours (approximately 9am - 11am or 1pm - 3pm), although we are happy to amend these timings to suit your school timetable. We will be covering four main topics:

  • What it's really like to study at a top university: why people go to university, the costs and benefits of higher education, and a workshop on student life
  • An introduction to Oxford: busting myths about highly selective universities like Oxford and Cambridge
  • Progressing to a top university: guidance on A-Level choices, how to choose the right degree subject, and looking ahead to future applications
  • Academic taster session based on the University's Oxplore resources
