Being Human: Ancient and Modern Perspectives on Humanity

A free six-part university preparation programme for Year 12s considering studying humanities at degree level

The Faculty of Classics, Corpus Christi College and Worcester College invite students in Year 12 at state schools in the North West, Yorkshire and the Humber to join Oxford academics in thinking through some of the modern world's biggest questions - by looking back to the ancient world. 

The programme events are listed below; please click here to find further details, dates and how to apply.

  1. Five seminar discussions led by Oxford academics; all five are run both in Manchester AND in Huddersfield. Monthly, October 2019 to February 2020.
  2. A Three Day Residential in Oxford. All costs covered, including travel.
  3. Personal Statement and University Application Support.
    There is an additional event in the September of Year 13 for those aspiring to study a Classics related degree at Oxbridge.

Students cannot apply to attend individual events: students apply for the entire programme. There are 60 places available, 30 in Manchester and surrounding area and 30 in Huddersfield and the surrounding area.

Applications are open from June 17th to July 19th 2019. (Applications will re-open for a short period of time in September to enable Sixth Form Colleges to advertise to their new Year 12 cohorts.) Before applying, please check with your school and parent(s)/guardian(s) that you would be able to travel to the seminars and attend the March residential. If you are successful in gaining a place, you and your nominated teacher will be contacted with the full details of the programme.
