Half Term Virtual Taster Days
Sign ups for June half term are now open!
Magdalen College is pleased to run our half term virtual outreach event aimed at Y10, Y11 and Y12 students and teachers from state-run schools in the our 7 link regions (Barnsley, Brent, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Rotherham, Sheffield, Westminster) and in the East Midlands. Parents/family members/carers of applicants are also welcome to join either by signing up as an individual or watching the event alongside the child(ren) in the care.
The event will begin with an ‘Introduction to Oxford’ session by an outreach officer, followed by a virtual tour of Magdalen college and a session on applying to Oxford. This will be followed by a live Q&A with a panel of current students, outreach officers and academics from Magdalen College. You’ll also receive follow up support in the form of various resources we have available.
“I think this was perfect. Very impressed. The time given to Q&A (which is often short in non-virtual events) particularly was really useful.” – Previous Participant, Teacher
