Oxbridge University Challenge
08 July 2016
As part of Inspiration Day we held an Oxbridge Inspiration Workshop. The aim of the workshop was to enable girls to reflect on whether pursuing a degree at either Cambridge or Oxford University was for them. The day gave pupils the opportunity to test out the tutorial style education debating a range of thought provoking questions which had no right answer, as long as the reasoning was sound! The application process and how it differs from other universities was also explained to the group. At the end of day everyone was encouraged to reflect on whether this was a route which they would like to take and if so were given ideas as to how best to prepare.
