OXNET SUCCESS FOR 10 RSFC STUDENTS
Congratulations to the ten students who were successful in their applications to undertake the ‘unapologetically academic’ course which aims to widen participation to a variety of competitive universities.
The competition to participate on the course is fierce. The students all had to compose an admissions essay, which is deliberately challenging, along with their application to secure a place. There are five academic strands, with RSFC students securing places on four of the strands.
- Humanities and Social Science
- Philosophy and World Religions
- Modern Languages
- Ordered Universe
Throughout the year-long programme, which is being delivered virtually this year, the students will be treated as first year undergraduates and study topics not included on the sixth form curriculum.
Whilst undertaking a range of academic challenges the students will have the opportunity to learn different study skills, develop a strong understanding of the standards leading universities expect of their students and the admissions processes. The students will participate in: an academic study day; seminars and reading groups; an Easter essay competition; academic skills webinar and an access week during the summer holidays.
