Oxford Tutorials at NPTC Group

Oxford Tutorials at NPTC Group

A Level students at NPTC Group of Colleges have had an insight into life at Oxford University.

Doctor Beth Mortimer, who is a Zoology researcher at Jesus College Oxford, visited the Neath Campus and delivered talks to students on the Gifted and Talented Excellence Programme (GATE) about applying to Oxford and life at the University. Dr Mortimer also ran a series of tutorials in maths, science, physics and engineering to those thinking of applying for Oxbridge places.

Lecturer Bernadine McGuire said: “The tutorial sessions were run just like they would be at Oxford so it was great preparation for our students who are thinking about applying to go there.”

Several GATE students have also taken part in a workshop with a team from the Oxford Debating Society. They were introduced to the formula of debating which the Society uses and were also invited to contribute.

“They didn’t hesitate. It was a very worthwhile experience and our students were enthused and we have entered a team for the first time this year,” added Miss McGuire.
