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 4th April from 09:00-15:00.  

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
