Science Teachers learn about Oxford Admissions
On the 18th of March, Exeter and Lincoln Colleges hosted an evening for science teachers. The event included talks from tutors on the courses available, what tutors are looking for in applicants, and a student’s view of Oxford. The evening concluded with dinner at Exeter, and the chance for more informal conversations.
The event was a great success, with teachers from almost 40 schools and tutors from all of the science courses offered at Exeter and Lincoln attending.
Some comments from the teachers:
- “Very useful in terms of advising on A Level choices, personal statements and references.”
- “The whole approach was very open”
- “I had some knowledge confirmed and some misconceptions clarified”
We hope to host a similar event for the humanities and social sciences next year. Full details will be posted on the college website in 2010.
For details of other events open to schools and teachers please see the Schools Liaison pages of the website.
