MAble trip to Oxford University

Posted on: 12/03/2024

It has been an absolute privilege to take 26 students to Oxford University this week, with taster sessions in English, Politics and Medicine. The students engaged at a high level, asking questions, contributing to discussions and developing critical thinking skills. We engaged in topics as far reaching as modern-day democracy to gene editing to the Zapatistas in Mexico to vaccine development to poverty & satire in the 18th century. We had a tour of the college, experiencing what it was like to be surrounded by stunning architecture and eating in the college’s medieval dining hall. 

Students reflected on ‘How much more accessible it is than I thought’ in their feedback countering previous perception of Oxford as outside the reach of those from lower income backgrounds. 25% more of the students said they would now consider going to university compared to before the trip.
