Oxford University

Walking through the historic porter’s lodge into Keble College, Oxford is certainly incredibly impressive with the beautiful brick buildings framing green spaces. Etone students in year 10 were instantly impressed as they were greeted by India, our host for the day. Walking to their first session, pupils were already excitedly discussing their university plans and asking questions about what it would be like studying at Oxford University. 

India’s first session ‘Aiming High’ ensured the tone for the day was clearly set. Pupils took part in an engaging, interactive session where they were introduced to university options, history of universities, how degrees are taught, and what it’s like to live and learn at Oxford University.  Etone pupils were totally engaged in discussion and in asking and answering questions; thinking about their plans for life beyond school.  The opportunity to meet two second year students was invaluable and gave Etone pupils an insight into what it’s like to study at Oxford University giving them even more information to plan their next steps. 

Every Oxford College has a unique identity and this was demonstrated by a tour of Somerville College including the library, chapel and social areas. The day was highly valued by year 10 Eleanor reflected, ‘the university was so huge with such a huge variety of subjects which made me more aware of the opportunities and accessibility of Oxbridge.” Madiha, who plans to study medicine said, ‘I found the day educational and inspiring. I now feel like I know how to prepare to apply to Oxford and it’s definitely an option for me.’ Alex ‘really enjoyed the day, particularly Keble College where the building and courtyard were beautiful, and the students were so friendly.’
