English and Modern Languages Residential Study Visit

St Anne’s College is offering Year 12 students from UK state schools the opportunity to participate in a one-night Residential Study Visit during June 2018. 40 places are available across 3 subject streams. Accommodation, travel, meals and all activity costs will be covered by St Anne’s College.

These Residential Study Visits are designed to give students from backgrounds and schools with limited experience of Oxford a taste of what it’s like to live and study as an undergraduate at St Anne’s College and Oxford University. Participants will spend time with undergraduate students studying relevant courses, eat in the College dining hall and stay overnight in student accommodation. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn more about the application process for the relevant Oxford courses. For all subject streams, the academic programme will run from approximately 12:00pm on the first day to 12:30pm on the second day.

Priority will be given to students who we think will benefit most from the scheme. This will include:

  • Students whose home postcode falls into ACORN groups four or five.
  • Students whose home postcode indicates low rates of young participation in higher education (POLAR quintiles 1 and 2).
  • Students who attend UK state schools with limited history of progression to Oxford.
  • Students who attend UK state schools/colleges which perform below the national average at GCSE (or equivalent level) or A Level (or equivalent level).

English and Modern Languages Residential Study Visit

25th-26th June 2018

When you study the subjects called ‘English’ and ‘Modern Languages’ you are in fact focusing on literature; and literature in different languages has much in common. More than that, the crossovers between literature in different languages are often particularly interesting and creative.

This short course will introduce participants to the study of literature at university level, with a particular focus on the interactions between literature in English and in other languages. It is designed for Year 12 students who are thinking of applying to study any of the following at university:

  • English (Language and Literature)
  • Modern Languages
  • English and Modern Languages

Participants will have the opportunity to experience tutorial-style teaching and attend lectures and seminars delivered by St Anne’s College academic staff, including Professor Matthew Reynolds (Tutorial Fellow in English Language and Literature, St Anne’s College) and Professor Patrick McGuinness (Tutorial Fellow in Modern Languages, St Anne’s College).

Interested Year 12 students can apply to attend one of the St Anne’s Residential Study Visits by completing this online form:      

The deadline for applications is Monday 7th May 2018
