Nexus has made links with both Eton College and the University of Oxford during a jam packed tour of prestigious institutions.
Dr Foster and Mr Chapman were both delighted to be able to meet with a number of potential partner organisations during a busy two days of travelling. After leaving Cornwall in the early hours they were first met at Magdalen College School, an elite public school with a reputation for successfully getting large numbers of students into Oxbridge each year. We are delighted that our students will soon be benefiting from their experience in providing mock interviews and preparing students for their applications.
The afternoon was spent in Exeter College, one of the colleges of the University of Oxford. We are looking forward to working closely with the admissions team to ensure our students have the very best opportunities to visit the college and to find out more about applying to and studying at the University of Oxford. Next week we are hosting a visit from the Exeter College Head of Outreach with a view to becoming a hub for their South West outreach work.
Day two was spent at Eton College where we have been invited to send at least one student each year to their renowned summer school. This outstanding opportunity is designed to raise aspirations and to prepare students for applying to university.
