St Catharine's College is collaborating with Brasenose College (University of Oxford) to deliver a series of free webinars in 2024 for Year 12 (or equivalent e.g. S5) students thinking of applying to the Universities of Oxford or Cambridge in 2024.

Outreach staff will be delivering sessions with Oxbridge academics and students to:

  • Introduce life and learning at Oxbridge
  • Dispel common myths about the two universities and address prospective students' concerns
  • Give in-depth guidance on the Oxbridge application process
  • Provide strategies for looking after mental wellbeing
  • Give insights into studying subject(s) of interest at university
  • Provide information on and opportunities for subject exploration outside of the curriculum, including taster lectures and Q&As

Please see this page for more information about how we run our webinars.

Upcoming webinars

Subject Exploration - 6 - 7 pm GMT, March 7th 2024 - Register Here

This sessions is open to all students interested in applying to Oxford & Cambridge in 2024, but is primarily aimed at students in Year 12 (England & Wales), S5 (Scotland) or Year 13 (Northern Ireland). 

Join the Outreach teams from St Catharine's College, Cambridge and Brasenose College, Oxford to talk all things "Subject Exploration" in this webinar. We hear of super-curricular research all the time – and that it can help students gain a fascination for a subject and bolster university applications. But what exactly is a super-curricular activity and how is it done? Find out more in this session which covers where to find inspiration at home, at school, and elsewhere. We will also cover thinking critically and building up intellectual ideas and arguments as well as hear from current students about what they did to explore their subjects before applying to Oxford & Cambridge

The presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with current students who will be sharing their experiences of Oxbridge and the application process.
