What does the session cover?

The aims of this session are to build aspiration towards studying at competitive universities and to build the skills necessary to make a competitive application to institutions like Oxford in the future. The session utilises Oxford’s online portal Oxplore to encourage participants to use their reasoning and debating skills.

Who is this session for?

This session will bring participating young people into contact with young people from other local state schools. They will debate topics that have been designed to demonstrate that most courses at Oxford require an inter-disciplinary approach to study.

Why is this session important?

Familiarity with verbal reasoning helps prepare applicants for the way in which we teach at Oxford. This first step aims to demonstrate to young people that they have the ability to perform well in an interview scenario. They will be provided with some resources and ideas for further exploration.
