Oxbridge Information EveningOn Thursday 4th May we hosted our annual Oxbridge Information evening for girls in the UV and LVI who are interested in applying to Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

Hazel Wigginton of Merton College, Oxford, delivered a presentation that covered all aspects of the application process followed by a Question and Answer session. She echoed all of the things that we talk through with the girls as part of our Saturday morning 'Motiv8 Programme'. For example, they are looking for independent and resilient learners, the main focus of your application has to be the love of your subject and that only your academic credentials will be considered when deciding whether to offer you a place.

It was good to hear about the differences between Oxford and Cambridge, as well as their similarities, and Hazel encouraged the girls to find out more for themselves by attending the upcoming Open Days which take place on 28th and 29th June at Oxford and on 6th and 7th July at Cambridge respectively.
