Zara’s Oxford University Taster Sessions

Year 11 Zara Williams has had the opportunity to take part in a University programme based at Oxford University. 

 

Zara was due to attend a 5-day residential this summer, but due to Covid, the event was rescheduled over the internet.  Zara was able to find out first-hand what it is like being a student at one of the world’s leading universities.  She took a taster session each day in various subjects as well as participating in team-building activities. 

 

As part of the programme, Zara is fortunate to have a monthly mentoring session with one of Oxford’s current students, who is able to offer revision help and talk her through stress-busting techniques. 

 

Zara hopes she will be able to take part in next Easter’s residential programme where she will be able to stay at either Oxford or Cambridge University and have a total immersion experience of student life.

 

We wish her well!
