Year 12 Subject Study Days

Univ is delighted to host a full programme of subject study days for Year 12s each year in the Spring and Summer terms. These are an excellent way to gain an insight into

potential degree subjects. These will also give high-achieving students a taste of a university study and ideas for how they can develop their academic interests and skills beyond the classroom. They will be run by Univ’s subject tutors and post-graduate students, consist of classes and lectures, and include a tour of the college and lunch with current undergraduate students.

Each year Univ runs a number of multi-subject days. The programme so far consists of the following events:

  • English and History study day - Tuesday 16 January 2018. Applications open - see below for details of how to apply.

The subjects and dates of our other study days will be confirmed soon.


How to Apply

The application processes for these Study Days run separately for each subject based study day. Applications will generally open at least two months before the study day. There will be a short application form to complete including academic achievement and approval from a supporting teacher. There is no requirement to submit a personal statement.


Selection Criteria

The College may consider information such as GCSE results, school and background to choose students who will best benefit from the workshops. In case of over-subscription the College may also have to limit the number of attendees per school.

In the case of students who apply for more than one of our subject study days, depending on popularity we may only be able to offer students a place on one subject study day each. If you would like to apply to multiple but have a preference for one study day over another please make this clear as soon as possible.


English and History Study Day - Applications open

We are excited to host an engaging and challenging study day for 60 Year 12 students interested in English or History. The day will include lectures from Univ's tutors and some extended break-out sessions where you will be able to discuss your subject in detail with other students.
