The 2022 academic year webinar series is underway. To receive email reminders for events, please fill in this webform


St Catharine's College is collaborating with Brasenose College (University of Oxford) to deliver a series of free webinars in 2022 for Year 12 (England and Wales), Year 13 (Northern Ireland), or S5 (Scotland) students at state schools in the UK.

Liza Zhabina and Joe Organ (outreach staff at the two Colleges) 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
  • Give insights into studying subject(s) of interest at university
  • Provide information on and opportunities for subject exploration outside of the curriculum


The registration links for webinars for which booking has opened can be found in the programme below. Students from our outreach 'Link Areas' will have priority, however, we anticipate most of the webinars will have plenty of spaces for students from across the UK. The St Catharine's and Brasenose Link Areas are:

  • North Yorkshire (Catz and Brasenose)
  • Suffolk (Catz)
  • Rutland (Catz)
  • East Berkshire (Brasenose)

Open Days | June - September 2022

Throughout this period, we encourage students applying to Oxbridge in October 2022 to take part in the huge variety of events offered by Oxford and Cambridge. These events and resources are an excellent way for applicants to engage with current students, tutors and staff from across the colleges and departments at both universities.
