Virtual Humanities BAME Study Day 2022
Applications are now open!
Get the chance to explore what it is like to apply for and study a humanities degree at Oxford University. This virtual study day is for Year 12 students from UK State Schools who have Black, Asian, or Minority Ethnic (BAME) Heritage. The event will take place live via Microsoft Teams on the 12th April from 9:00-15:00.
It was a fantastic insight into what university lectures will be like and seeing so many passionate students pushed me to work harder to get in. -2021 Participant
The day will open with an introduction to the University of Oxford followed by the opportunity to attend two humanities subject lectures. You will learn more about the Oxford application process with additional resources provided to help. The day will conclude with a live Q&A where you will have the opportunity to ask your questions to current Oxford students from BAME backgrounds. View our event poster here.
For the academic lectures you will be able to choose from the following subjects: Classics, English, History, History of Art, Modern Languages, Music, Oriental Studies, Music or Philosophy. You will be able to specify your preferred lectures on the application form. All lectures will be recorded and available to watch after the event. If you are unable to attend live on the 12th April but would like access to the recordings and resources, then please still submit an application.
