Talks with Tutors: Taster Subject Lectures

Event: Talks with Tutors: Taster Subject Lectures

Magdalen College is proud to be running a series of virtual lectures delivered by their academic tutors for state school students in our 7 link areas (Barnsley, Brent, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Rotherham, Sheffield, Westminster) and in the East Midlands. These aim to give school students a taster of what studying a particular subject may be like at university level. Each talk will be delivered using Microsoft Teams and include a Q&A where you can ask your own questions.
