Our seminar programme involves attending a session every two weeks. Sessions will alternate between discussion seminars and thinking skills development.

What to expect

  • In discussion sessions, we’ll foster your academic inquisitiveness using a range of resources. You’ll build your academic confidence, interview skills and collaboration skills. You’ll also have chance to attend and feedback on talks/seminars hosted by the University of Oxford. These sessions are similar to seminars you’ll attend at University.
  • If you’re in the Sixth Form, you’ll use thinking skills sessions to build skills to analyse arguments and develop the ability to argue concisely and effectively. We’ll also encourage you to access to a Duke online course that you’ll work through during the year.
