Visiting Your School or College
A member of the Mansfield Access team can visit your school or college to give presentations and run workshops with your students and any interested staff.
Here are some examples of sessions we can run:
Oxford Explained (KS3-4)
An explanation of what it's like to study at Oxford, and what Oxford (and other competitive universities) are looking for.
A workshop designed around the Oxplore website, aimed at pushing students beyond the curriculum. Is a robot a person? Could we live without laws? Could there be real-life XMen? This session will give pupils the opportunity to answer some big questions, and to create their own.
Applying to Oxford (KS5)
A guide to the Oxford admissions process, providing advice for students on making a competitive application and alleviating any concerns.
Personal Statement Workshop (KS5)
Offers guidance on writing focused, engaging and successful personal statements.
Interview Workshop (KS5)
An opportunity to discuss and practise interview skills, focused on challenging some of the preconceptions which surround Oxford interviews.
Talks for teachers interested in learning more about the Oxford application process, personal statement and reference writing and how best to support students.
Parents and Carers' Talk
Talks for parents and carers who want to find out more about Oxford and how to support their child's application.
We are happy to talk to any age group, though we prioritise students in years 9-13. We can talk to multiple groups in one visit (including parents, carers and teachers).
