Bookings now open!
The Oxford and Cambridge student conferences are held at seven venues across the UK throughout March. There are eight conferences in total (the one in Surrey runs twice) and each promises “to provide up-to-date information on the application and admissions procedure” as well as “an insight into student life”. Like Lumina, they’re completely free and aimed at Year 12 students. Alongside formal presentations on topics such as course choices, student finance and interviews, admissions tutors, academic staff and current undergraduates will be available to share their insider info on both institutions. Those considering Lumina might be interested in the Surrey ones, which take place at Epsom Downs Racecourse on Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 March from 9am to 3.30pm. A member of staff at your school must make your booking, so speak to your Head of Sixth Form or equivalent if you think you might be interested. You’ll need an e-ticket to attend.
