Pre-University Programme is a preparatory course for students who have completed or are about to complete their SPM or O-Level, and are looking to further their studies. At this programme, we aim for the participants to equip themselves with the right knowledge and learning skills so that they will be able to handle the challenges of an undergraduate degree course. At our programmme, participants learned about key things to cover in their university applications and speakers are generally panel of interviewers from Oxford’s respective colleges. Students are recommended to prepare for the interviews thoroughly and to treat them as though it is an exam. Emphasis on analysis and application of knowledge is a very important topic and this is covered by Marianne Talbot in her Critical Reasoning & Informal Logics Workshop. Prospective students are encouraged to do their research and come back with fully formed arguments during the interview about specific details that they have researched. Applying for the right course, will be a topic that Prof Angus Hawkins will share with candidates. As the admission officer and fellow at Keble College, Angus has always professed and recommend being sure students apply for a subject they love, not one they think will be a means to an end, as this will come across in the interview process. One of Angus most important advice is for students to seek as much help as they can and to identify in themselves their interesting academic characteristics and play to them in the application, aptitude tests, and interview.
Students live at Lady Margaret Hall (LMH), one of the 39 colleges that make up Oxford University. LMH is a historic college located alongside the University Parks and River Cherwell, and is within easy reach of central Oxford. Participants will have full access to LMH’s 12-acre site with gardens, soccer fields, tennis courts and its own boathouse. LMH also has common rooms for group activities and down time with friends.
Student Life & Dining
Students reside in twin or single bedrooms on a communal hallway with dedicated residential staff living on site monitor and support all aspects of the student experience. Additionally, professional porters staff the gated entrance to LMH 24-hours a day. Breakfast and dinner take place in LMH’s magnificent oak panelled dining room with a variety of meal options prepared on site.
Daily activities ensure there is never a dull moment at Oxford. Outdoor activities such as soccer, croquet, cricket, tennis and punting (in summer) are complemented by cultural trips, including museum visits, In the evenings, students enjoy films, theatre performances, performance night, dances and talent shows.
Oxford seminars are modelled on the Oxford tutorial format, with small class sizes and an emphasis on student-based discussion. Seminars are designed to be interactive, inspiring and fun and are enhanced by field trips and guest lectures that provide ‘only in Oxford’ experiences. Students are encouraged to design their own academic experience by exploring a variety of subjects.
Critical Reasoning & Informal Logic
Being able to reason well is a crucial skill in many areas of our lives. We need to be able to critically assess the positions expressed by politicians, journalists, academics and businesses, as well as friends, family members and work colleagues. We also want our own views to be rational and able to stand up to critical scrutiny. At the programme, we discuss examples of both reasoning about facts and the reasoning required in making practical decisions. Students are taught how to analyse and evaluate others’ attempts to persuade them. They are shown how to spot and avoid common fallacies and misuses of language. Moreover they are encouraged to think critically about the ideas presented to them. Those who relish the challenge of thinking rationally and learning new skills will enjoy this course.
The Oxford Global Leadership Initiative
The Oxford Global Leadership Initiative seeks to help talented students develop key virtues of character which will prepare them to be the wise thinkers and good leaders the world so desperately needs. The program will discuss virtues and themes that are essential for personal formation and moral leadership, the relationship between leading and following, the place of failure, the nature of service and vocation, and the virtues of honesty, wisdom, gratitude and humility.
Admission Interview Workshop
Students are recommended to prepare for the interviews thoroughly and to treat them as though it is an exam. Of course, prospective students are encouraged to do their research and come back with fully formed arguments during the interview about specific details that they have researched.Applying for the right course, will be a topic that Prof Angus Hawkins will share with candidates.
