Oxford Pathways: Investigating Social Sciences

The 'Investigating Options' events aim to explain the importance of GCSE results and post-16 choices to Year 11 students and their teachers. They are designed for students who have already had some other introduction to Oxford, such as a Taster Day.

We also run three specific subject-area days. Investigating Social Sciences provides students with the chance to explore a number of subjects within the Social Sciences through a series of lectures.

The events are for Year 11 students at state schools across the UK, usually without sixth forms, or with little, if any, history of sending applicants to Oxford.

Applications for Investigating Social Sciences are made by individuals, but we ask students to nominate a teacher at their school to support their application.
