Young students and their parents will have the opportunity to meet staff from Oxford University next month when they host a special event in North Berwick that aims to demystify and explain the application process for Oxford and Cambridge Universities. The ‘Oxford Explained’ presentation, to be held at North Berwick High School on 13 March, covers all aspects of student life and the admissions process for Oxford including course choice, the college system, tutorial teaching, admissions tests and interviews.

The event aims to leave students feeling much better informed about what applying to and studying at Oxford would involve, as well as aiming to break down any misconceptions about Oxford that may deter students from making an application. The session will be delivered by Oxford Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach office staff and it is hoped that it will be supported by current students who will share their experiences. The session is targeted at students in S5, but can also be helpful for younger year groups considering Oxford. Parents are also encouraged to attend.

Oxford Explained and Student Life will be on Tuesday 13 March from 6.30pm to 8pm at North Berwick High School. Places can be reserved by visiting www.eventbrite.co.uk
