Year 11 and 12 students visit Oxford University
On the 17th October 2011 a selected group of Year 11 and 12 students were taken to Oxford University. We were privilege enough to have a tour around the campus. They showed us the different types of colleges that were featured in the university such as Christ Church and St Anne’s college. The styles of the both colleges were very different as one was modern and one was very traditional as the style of the campus held many of the old and traditional features. When arriving at the university we were met by a language teacher at the university who told us all about how the university works, explained about campus life and informed us about the accommodation and entry process, including the grades that we would need in order to enter each course. This was extremely helpful for those of us considering applying to Oxford and it gave us a good insight into the UCAS process and what student life at Oxford is like.
