To prepare and equip prospective applicants with the high level skills required for study on a course at Oxford, we strongly encourage students to explore and deepen their subject knowledge well beyond the school curriculum. We call this particular kind of academic engagement super-curricular activity. We believe this helps students develop the necessary thinking and problem solving skills associated with the learning experience offered here at Oxford. You will find a range of resources below. Students can also access public lectures, teaching material and interviews with leading academics on iTunesU. BBC Radio iPlayer also broadcasts an excellent programme of discussions across a vast array of subject areas.
