About the Event

The Oxford and Cambridge Virtual Student Conference are aimed at Year 12 students (or equivalent) who are studying for their A Levels/IB/Scottish Highers (or equivalent) in the UK and are beginning to consider their options for study beyond sixth form.

The conferences offer:

  • Webinars on applying to Oxford and Cambridge (including Student Experience)
  • Opportunities to chat live with course academics and current undergraduate students
  • Videos of current undergraduate students from your region talking about their experiences of applying, settling into life at both Universities and their course of study
  • Information for teachers and HE advisors

Our aim is for students to have the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into what living and studying at Oxford and Cambridge is like, an understanding of how both universities assess applications and the opportunity to ask any questions they may have.
