Year 12 Shadowing Day

Following our successful first event in 2023, Trinity College have again teamed up with the University's African and Caribbean Society and Brasenose College to offer year 12 state school students from African and Caribbean backgrounds another exciting access day.

Date: Thursday 8 February 2024

Time: 9:30am - 5pm

Venue: Trinity College, University of Oxford

Join the Oxford ACS for a Shadowing Day in collaboration with Trinity and Brasenose Colleges, University of Oxford. This day is aimed at Year 12 state school students from African and Caribbean backgrounds interested in applying to Oxford for undergraduate study.
