Essex Stretch Days 2016
With generous support from the Oxbridge Collaborative Outreach Network, Hertford College, Oxford and Emmanuel College, Cambridge, are co-hosting a series of three Stretch Days in venues across Essex.
Thursday 25 February – Civic Centre, Southend
Wednesday 2 March – Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford
Friday 8 July – University of Essex, Colchester
The Stretch Days are access events open to high-achieving state school students in Y12. They are designed to introduce them to the range of courses on offer at Oxford and Cambridge, and give them a chance to experience academic sessions delivered by Oxford and Cambridge tutors, and by researchers from a number of other leading universities.
Lunch, academic sessions and advice on Oxbridge admissions processes are provided free of charge. The only expense for those partcipating is the cost of travel to the relevant venue.
Schools are invited to apply to bring groups of up to 10 students each, and should contact Dr Catherine Redford at catherine [dot] redford [at] hertford [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk to express an interest in attending.
