Oriel College is hosting a Classics & English Taster Day (in collaboration with the English and Classics Faculties) for Year 12 students from UK state schools. This is a full day programme to acquaint prospective students with this joint honours degree course.

Students are expected to make their own travel arrangements, but those who feel that travel expenses are likely to hinder their ability to attend the event are encouraged to enquire with the Oriel College Outreach Officer at about financial support. Please note that as this event is held during the University term, no accommodation is available. Lunch is included.
