Counsellors' workshop webinar
These webinars are designed to enable groups of international counsellors to delve deeply into specific aspects of the application and selection processes in an interactive workshop setting.
Subjects can include (but are not limited to):
- applying to competitive institutions in the UK
- preparing your students for interviews
- what we look for in teachers' academic references
- and de-mystifying the Oxford application process.
If interested, we recommend that you discuss this with colleagues from other schools (we recommend a minimum of 10 counsellors) and contact us with preferred dates and subject matter.
Webinars for students
We offer a series of recorded webinars for your students to learn more about Oxford.
