Year 10 Oxbridge Workshops
We were lucky enough to host a half day workshop led by Gwyneth Hamand who is a London Outreach Officer at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge University. She presented a range of information about a wide variety of University courses on offer, from Land Economy to Chinese Law! Our students were very interested to learn about the unique features of degree level study at an Oxbridge University, in addition to the application and interview process. They had an opportunity to explore various super curricular themes and to find out more about the entrance requirements for various courses of study. The workshop was interactive and it really helped our Year 10 cohort to continue to consider pathways beyond our Sixth Form. This work will continue throughout their 11-18 learning journey at Queen Elizabeth's Girls' School.
A Year 10 student commented:
"I enjoyed the Oxbridge workshop as it gave me a real insight into what University life would be like, especially at Oxford or Cambridge. It allowed me to think further into what A Levels I might take to accommodate the many courses available. It was helpful as we were able to ask any questions that we had which made the session very interactive. Learning more about Oxbridge has allowed me to think more about the opportunities that the choice of University could provide for me."
