Half Term Virtual Taster Day

Event: Half Term Virtual Taster Day

Deadline for sign-up: Tuesday 27th October, 12pm

Magdalen College is pleased to run their half term virtual outreach event aimed at Y10, Y11 and Y12 students and teachers from state-run schools in the following regions: Barnsley, Brent, Nottinghamshire, Rotherham, Sheffield and Westminster. Parents/family members/carers of applicants are also welcome to join.

The event will begin with an ‘Introduction to Oxford’ session by an outreach officer, a virtual tour of Magdalen college and a session on applying to Oxford. This will be followed by a live Q&A with a panel of current students, outreach officers and academics from Magdalen College. You’ll also receive follow up support in the form of various resources we have available.
