Three Year 12 students at West Hatch High School visited the University of Oxford to take part in lectures and tutorials whilst shadowing a current undergraduate student. 

Hannah Purton first visited Brasenose College where she shadowed an English undergraduate.

She said: "I asked her lots of questions in relation to her Oxford experience overall and how she found the admission process; I learnt a lot about the life of a typical university student as well as the content of the English Literature course."

Hannah also toured the area and took part in one of her undergraduate’s lessons.

She then went on to Merton College where she met other Year 12 students and undergraduates and was given a tour of Merton College before attending a workshop.

"The students were friendly and approachable which made the experience less intimidating and enabled me to enquire about all aspects of college life."

Seb Weller said: "I was given a tour of the whole university - which I found out to be very large indeed!

"The quality of facilities that Oxford has to offer is incredible, from libraries which hold up 60,000 volumes and giant auditoriums to glistening sports pitches."

Seb then joined an economics and management lecture.

"I found the experience very helpful and enjoyable and I hope the experience will serve me well when the time comes for me to apply to a university of my choice."

Fellow West Hatch student Natasha Watts said: "I was able to gain an insight into university life and in particular receive knowledge from a current undergraduate of a study of interest to me. 

"I would highly recommend anyone with a keen interest to pursue further studies in higher education to apply for this scheme.

"Not only was I able to indulge in a tour of the colleges, I also learnt more about general tips on applications to universities and the interview process. 

"From this once in-a-lifetime experience I can strongly say I am much more confident in my decision to go to university and more motivated to achieve my goals at Sixth Form to allow me to continue on the path I am going down."
