OxNet is an access initiative which places universities into the heart of local communities, to engage in activity which is intensive, academic and sustained.
As engines of innovation and the advancement of human endeavour, universities are unparalleled in society. Higher education has the power to transform the lives of talented young people from every background.
Working with pupils, teachers, families and communities in Hub and Link Schools, OxNet seeks to take university learning directly into schools, bringing cutting-edge research into the classroom. It focuses intensively both on regional mobility and on subject, seeking to support and encourage young people to make successful applications to competitive universities from all regions of the UK and across a diverse range of subjects.
After the great successes of the 2016-2017 LCLC Programme, Pembroke College, Westminster Academy and the Open University have joined forces once again to support the London Centre for Languages and Cultures 2017-2018 academic programme.
We are pleased to share the below calendar as part of the London Centre for Languages and Cultures Academic Programme for the coming academic year. These events have been carefully organised as part of the LCLC mission to strengthen the teaching and learning of Modern Languages across the Tri-Borough. Please note that dates and venues are subject to change, and that extra, ad-hoc events may be added to the programme over the course of the year.
From Sunday 31st July – Friday 5th August 2016, Pembroke College, Oxford, welcomed twenty-two students from six schools and colleges across the North West to the 3rd annual Theology & Religious Studies Centre Summer School.
As of 2016/17, the NWSN programme will include twilight lectures at both South Cheshire College and Xaverian College. Our partner schools and colleges have the opportunity to host a twilight too. The application dates for the maths and summer schools have also been brought forward to avoid exam season.
