Oxbridge Event

‘An Evening with Oxbridge’ will see two admissions tutors from Oxford and Cambridge share their advice on applying to Russell Group universities.

Their message and ours is that a place at one of the UK’s finest universities is within your reach.

The Russell Group is made up of the UK’s top research-led universities and this event will help you maximise your chances of securing a place at one of them.

We are delighted that Cambridge University’s Dr Stuart Palmer and Dr Peter Claus, from Oxford University, have agreed to lead the presentations.

Both tutors are committed to encouraging students from the North West to apply to Russell Group universities.

They play a leading role in running programmes that stretch and challenge many students at Priestley College who are taking science and art courses, including the HE+ Cambridge masterclasses and Pembroke North programme. These opportunities raise the aspirations and confidence of Priestley students.

‘An Evening with Oxbridge’ will cover the following:

  • An introduction to university
  • The recommended breadth of a college programme
  • Enrichment activities to support applications for competitive courses including the Graduate, Pre-Medical, and Pre-Law
  • Student finance
  • Prospects after a degree
  • A workshop and Q&A session with the Oxbridge academics

‘An Evening with Oxbridge expanded my knowledge about my potential future and how, with Priestley College’s help and excellent support network, I could achieve a far more than I could alone’

Former Bridgewater High pupil Sophie Johnson, now studying Art, English Literature, Politics, Early Modern History at Priestley as well as the Graduate Programme and specialist Masterclasses.


‘An invaluable insight into the selection procedures from some the best universities in the world. They make no apologies for seeking the brightest minds of their generation, yet at the same time the evening was inspirational and offered fantastic advice for prospective students’



‘A great evening with a useful introduction to what an education at an Oxbridge university would be like’

Former Birchwood High pupil George Dunbar, now studying Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Extended Project as well as the Graduate Programme and specialist Masterclasses.


‘A fantastic opportunity to get some inside information on getting a place at a top university’


Priestley is planning to run a selection of masterclasses later in the year and will be inviting you to attend.

This invitation will include an introduction to Priestley and the exciting range of further opportunities the college offers to prepare students for competitive higher-tariff universities.

We are also looking into the possibility of running university visits so that you can get the best possible idea of whether Higher Education is for you.

Take a look at our Excel brochure to find out about the courses and support we offer  at college that will help you secure the best university places in the country.
