Outreach Event Booking Form
Magdalen College runs regular taster days in Oxford (during Oxford term time) and in schools (outside of Oxford term times). These are run for state maintained schools with a high proportion of students from groups that are under-represented at Oxford. Our events are primarily for schools located in our seven link regions (Barnsley, Brent, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Rotherham, Sheffield, and Westminster). If you are not based in one of these regions then please find your link college here.
The booking window for taster days between Tue 12th October- Fri 3rd December (Tues-Fri only) has now opened and will close on July 2nd. We realise this is an incredibly busy time for teachers so if you are unable to book an event now then we will be opening up some remaining taster day slots in September.
In the case of over subscription schools are prioritised based on the following criteria:
- State run school
- From one of the above link areas
- Amount of previous engagement with Oxford (last 12 months)
- Percentage of children receiving free school meals at the school
- Polar 4 data
- Percentage of BAME students compared to region
We also run a travel expenses scheme for schools that are from our link regions, bringing 10 students or more to Magdalen from over 75 miles away and would be unable to visit Magdalen without financial support. You can apply for this via the form below.
These bookings will remain provisional and we will be guided by the government covid-19 guidelines at the time the event is due to take place- if social distancing is required then events will likely not be possible. In the case of this occurring, we would move back to a full programme of virtual provision.
