About the event

Applying to either Oxford or Cambridge University is regarded as a complex and highly competitive route.

In this presentation, Dr Norris will aim to demystify the process for both parents and pupils. Information will be given about the respective universities, the courses they offer, their admissions requirements and how pupils can best prepare themselves for a successful application.

The application process itself will be explored, including the interview stage.

The 45 minute presentation will also offer plenty of time for Q&A and opportunities to discuss individual aspirations.

Who should attend?

This event is open to anyone interested in applying to Oxbridge, from whatever school they currently attend. It is suitable for any age, but particularly relevant to those in Year 10 upwards.
