Online History Study Days
Oxford University’s History Faculty provides free online study days to encourage students in Year 12 (or studying in their first year of further education) at UK schools, sixth forms and FE colleges to develop their love for history. Study days offer the opportunity to find out about the latest exciting historical research, to learn with Oxford’s history tutors, and to develop historical skills and interests beyond schoolwork.
Virtual Humanities BAME Study Day 2022
Applications are now open!
This virtual study day offers the opportunity for attendees to explore what it is like to apply for and study a humanities degree at the University of Oxford. Applications are open to Year 12 students from UK state schools who have Black, Asian, or Minority Ethnic (BAME) Heritage. The event will take place live online via Microsoft Teams on the 12th April from 09:00-15:00.
It was a fantastic insight into what university lectures will be like and seeing so many passionate students pushed me to work harder to get in.
The day will open with an introduction to the University of Oxford followed by the opportunity to attend two humanities subject lectures. You will learn more about the Oxford application process during our interactive workshop. The day will conclude with a live Q&A where you will have the opportunity to ask current Oxford students from BAME backgrounds anything and everything about studying at Oxford. View our event poster here.
You will be able to choose from the following subject lectures: Classics, English, History, History of Art, Modern Languages, Oriental Studies, Music or Philosophy. All lectures will be recorded and available to watch after the event. If you are unable to attend live on the 12th April but would like access to the recordings and resources, then please submit an application form and indicate this when asked.
