Oxford University History Skills Workshop

Oxford University History Faculty is offering a History Skills Workshop after school on Tuesday 9th October for any students in state schools in and around Oxford who are considering applying to study history at Oxford University. The small interactive workshop will be particularly useful for any Year 13 students who are applying to Oxford this October and would like some additional support with the application process. Potential applicants in Year 12 and any teachers would be very welcome too. The workshop will include:
– primary source analysis to familiarise students with the aims of the History Aptitude Test (HAT)
– a mini-mock interview to show students what tutors are looking for in history interviews
– guidance on personal statements and written work etc
– Q&A with current history students and tutors
If some of your students and/ or you would like to attend (or have any questions about the workshop), please email Sian Pooley (the History Faculty’s Schools Liaison co-ordinator) with numbers by Friday 5th October – sian.pooley@magd.ox.ac.uk

This event was prompted by a request from a local school, but is part of a programme of History Skills Workshops that the History Faculty is developing for state schools across the UK. It is hoped that a similar workshop for local schools can be offered annually.
