When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the UK and lockdown began, all of the University’s face-to-face outreach events were suspended. The Humanities BAME Study Day had been scheduled to take place just a few weeks after the country was placed under strict restrictions and the event team were forced to notify event applicants that sadly they would not be able to attend the event in Oxford.
With the majority of Oxford University staff now working remotely, the team have worked to move this event online. On Monday 27 July the event organisers are looking forward to welcoming Year 12 students who signed up for the original day to this virtual experience.
The study day is being run jointly by Oxford University’s History Faculty, English Faculty, University College and Magdalen College. It aims to give potential applicants more information about applying to and studying a humanities degree at Oxford with input from outreach staff, academics and current students. The event schedule will include admissions talks, subject lectures, and a Q&A with current Oxford undergraduates.
Please note, this virtual event is only open to those students who applied for the original cancelled study day. The event was oversubscribed and we do not anticipate being able to open up spaces for students beyond those who originally applied.
