Oxford University Aspirations for Traflagar Students

Oxford University was the location for our Year 10 and 11 higher attainers today for Trafalgar’s PD Day – Aspiration. Students were lucky enough to spend the day at the world number one ranked University (The Times 2019), discussing the choices they might need to make should they wish to submit an Oxbridge application.

It was great to hear so many of our students’ high aspirations to be medics, lawyers or architects. The University also provided information about the different course structures of the science and humanity subject groups and this impacts the amount of lectures and private study students would be expected to do. Students toured St Edmunds College, getting a flavour of student life at the University and had the best canteen lunch we’ve ever had in the University halls- it’s not every day we get the offer of a three course meal on a trip!

This was an amazing opportunity for our students and we hope many of our students consider making that application in the years to come. Further information about the application process for the country’s prestigious Russell Group university can be found on their website. https://www.russellgroup.ac.uk/. #aiminghigher #aspirational #teamtrafalgar
