Great opportunities for state school students
"Choosing to apply to study Classics at Oxford was intimidating. My school did not offer Classics-related subjects, such as Classical Civilisation. However, the Classics Faculty at Oxford, and the university in general, offer great opportunities for state school students to learn about the subject, while gaining advice about applications, and general insights into life at Oxford. Summer schools such as UNIQ, and Ashmolean Museum open days are two examples of the many opportunities you can take up if you are interested in applying to Oxford. I participated in Classics Faculty open days, and study days at the museums, and the UNIQ summer school. These opportunities meant that I became more comfortable with what to expect when coming to interviews, and what life at Oxford would be like."
