Calling Year 12 school students! Applications are open for five day Biology and Classics Summer Schools run by Wadham College at the University of Oxford from 20 - 24 August 2018

Both residential summer schools are designed to give school students a taster of what it’s like to be an undergraduate studying at Oxford.  Pupils will take part in an academic programme on a topic, live in College and meet student ambassadors studying at Oxford, as well as receiving information, advice and guidance on applying to university.  The Summer Schools are free and Wadham College will provide financial support to pupils selected who will have to travel to attend.

Participants will engage in a seminar series focussing on human biology alongside sessions on cellular and animal biology.  This will also include classes in the Biological Sciences Faculty and Wytham Research Station and students will complete an assignment on the main topic.  You will also be able to receive support from students studying at Wadham and from the College with information on making successful applications to top universities.
