Corpus is running a series of free, virtual events in May and June for students at state schools and sixth form colleges in Greater Manchester. The sessions are primarily aimed at students in Year 12 but students in Years 10 and 11 will also find them useful.  

The four sessions will take place from 4.45pm to 5.30pm every other Tuesday. The sessions will enable you to receive detailed information about Oxford, hear from current students and access application support.  

4.45pm to 5.30pm Tuesday 18 May: Oxford Explained 
The Oxford Explained session will give you a taste of what the University of Oxford is really like. Course and college choice, academic life, social life, careers and finances will all be covered. We will also give you advice and guidance about navigating the application process.
4.45pm to 5.30pm Tuesday 1 June: Student Journeys to Oxford
The Student Journeys to Oxford session will enable you to virtually meet current Oxford students. You will hear about their journeys, how they find life at Oxford and their reflections on the application process. Students will also share their experiences of coming to Oxford from Greater Manchester and answer your questions. 
4.45pm to 5.30pm Tuesday 15 June: Study Skills 
The Study Skills session will be packed with useful ideas. The session will consider what super-curricular exploration is and how it helps your Oxford application. We will then introduce you to unexpected resources and critical thinking skills that will help you explore your subject. There will also be tips on revision.  
4.45pm to 5.30pm Tuesday 29 June: Personal Statements 
The Personal Statements session will be a deep dive into how to write a cracking personal statement. We will look at how the personal statement fits into the Oxford application process and what Oxford tutors are looking for. The session will give you lots of tips and tricks on what to include and how to manage the writing process. 
The sessions will be held on Microsoft Teams Live but you do not need to have Teams to join. Please submit ourstudent sign-up form to receive the attendee links for all the sessions. You can sign up for the series at any time up until 1pm on Tuesday 29 June. If you sign up after 1pm on the day of one of the sessions, we will not be able to send you the link in time to join that session live, but we will send you the links for the remaining sessions as soon as possible afterwards.
