Access and Outreach
Magdalen’s Outreach Team has worked incredibly hard over the last few months to try and ensure that young people in our link regions and beyond continue to be supported. In place of in-person visits to Magdalen, we have run two virtual taster days with three more fully booked events in June, set to involve over 200 prospective students. Over 90% of our participants so far said they felt more confident making an application after attending a virtual taster day. We’re also collaborating with the English Faculty, History Faculty and University College to transform our BAME Humanities Day into an online event which will be held in July. Similarly, we are working hard to create virtual events in place of our Open Days and Year 12 Law Residential. For young people unable to attend live events, we have created a bank of online resources including academic and admissions talks, student Q&A videos and a resource pack to help students explore their chosen subject.
Our outreach work will continue to adapt to face these new challenges. This would not be possible without the continued generous support of our alumni.
One of Magdalen’s most important investments is in encouraging students from a range of different backgrounds to apply to Oxford and in giving them the information they need in order to make a competitive application. Your help will enable us to demonstrate to students with the greatest potential, who wouldn’t historically apply to Oxford, that Magdalen can offer them an environment to realise their full intellectual and creative potential.
