Our fabulous Elite Scholars visited Oxford University and our partner college Hertford College this week and were certainly very popular with the tourists in their uniforms! They had a wonderful day meeting students and learning about how life as an Oxford Uni student works. They learned about the College system and traditions and the Harry Potter filming links (of course!)! They were able to smash some myths about what they need to do (and not do!) to get in and how they would be looked after if they gained a place. They learned about tutorials, lectures, societies, finance and wellbeing. They learned about research intensive universities and academic studies. They also had some myths busted about what qualifications you need and don't need for different careers! They were so impressive and the uni fed back that they couldn't believe the amount of questions they had to ask and how confident they were to ask them. They took part in an academic detective activity, had lunch in the very grand refectory as well as a tour of the college and of Oxford. We were so proud of them, they were amazing.
