Oxford and SEREN
We have worked closely with the Welsh Government’s Seren programme for several years. Oxford Cymru will continue and develop this collaboration with Seren and the associated Seren Hubs across Wales.
We attend most major Seren events such as the annual Seren Conference, university admissions events and regional Hub launches. We also work closely with the Seren Hubs to offer Taster Days, admissions and information workshops, subject master classes, and other academic focused programmes both in Wales and Oxford.
Jesus College Seren Summer School – Year 12
Jesus College’s flagship event – the Jesus College Seren Summer School – is the highlight of the Jesus summer events programme and sees the College welcome 75 Year 12 Seren students for a one-week residential in Oxford!
And for 2021 the Jesus College summer school programme is bigger and better than ever! There will be two summer schools running in July and August:
- Online International Summer School: The online International Summer School will be subject-focussed, with scenario-based projects that can be presented to experts in the Welsh Government. The two-week programme will run from 19-30 July 2021.
- Jesus College Residential Summer School: An inter-disciplinary and skills focused residential event held in Oxford (Covid19 restrictions permitting!) from 16-20 August 2021.
Applications for 2021 are now closed. These programmes are highly competitive and we strongly encourage future Year 12 Seren students to apply at the appropriate time. We expect applications for next year to open in late 2021/early 2022. Please visit the Jesus College website here, which will be updated as and when further information is available.
Due to the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, the Summer School 2020 was moved to a virtual programme. Here is what some of the 2020 cohort had to say about their virtual experience.
