A typical day on one of our programmes

Take a look at the timetable here to see an example of how your typical day might look:

08:00BreakfastStudents kick off the day with breakfast together before a daily briefing with the Varsity team.
09:00-13:00Morning SeminarsEach morning students participate in seminars in both of their subjects, learning about new topics, discussing and debating ideas and presenting to each other. With just 4-6 students per class, led by expert tutors and Oxbridge academics, these seminars provide engaging and in-depth learning opportunities.
13:00-14:00LunchStudents are free to explore the city with their new friends and grab lunch in one of the many chic cafes, multicultural restaurants or vibrant markets.
14:00-16:00Afternoon workshopsThese workshops help prepare students for the highly competitive university admissions process with the confidence, skills and knowledge required for success. The workshops cover personal statement writing, exam and interview skills, current affairs, debating, essay writing, critical thinking and more.
16:00-18:00Tutorials or activitiesAfter the workshops, students will either meet with their subject tutors in a one-on-one tutorial to discuss their work or take part in fun or educational activities, ranging from honing their public speaking skills to playing sports or participating in a scavenger hunt!

19:30Evening activityEvenings include cultural and social events for our students. This could be a guest lecture, a quiz night, a theatre trip or a visit to the ice rink.
