Study Higher Year 10 Academic Conference


On 1st November 2017, Oxford University in partnership with Oxford Brookes and Bucks New Universities hosted a Study Higher Year 10 Academic Conference with a focus on Humanities and Social Sciences.

Fifty Year 10 students from six schools in the region (Aylesbury Vale Academy, John Madejski Academy, Sir Herbert Leon Academy, Blessed Hugh Faringdon, Reading Girls’ School and The Forest School) attended.

Students had the opportunity to attend subject taster sessions in subjects available at higher education, go on a tour of an Oxford College and ask current undergraduates from each of the universities, questions about what university life is really like.

The feedback from the students was really positive.
