OxNet Study Trip

Successful OxNet applicants attended their first Study Day at Ushaw College in Durham with Dr Peter Claus and Professor Giles Gasper. Students threw away the boundaries of A-level study and became undergraduates for the first time learning how to analyse gobbets of texts, debating the meaning of a ‘discipline’ and considering the criteria of what truly makes a science or a humanity. Discussions were punctuated with tours of Ushaw College and the day finished with a guide on university admissions from Richard Petty of Trinity College, Oxford.
