Year 12 2013 Oxford and Cambridge Student Conference

This conference is a chance for Year 12 students  to have the best possible opportunity to find out more about these universities, from comparing and contrasting our courses and admissions procedures, through to talking with current undergraduates, lecturers, and admissions tutors in a whole variety of subjects. There will also be material available about Oxbridge interviews, student finance, careers options, etc.
This year's free conference is taking place in Swansea's Liberty Stadium on Tuesday 19th March 2013 and is a brilliant opportunity to learn more about education at these first class institutions.  Every year, students from  Welsh schools just like ours win places at both Oxford and Cambridge and next year IT COULD BE YOU!
Please give your name to Mrs Brockley in the library if you are interested in attending.
