Welcome to St Catherine’s College (or, as you’ll soon get used to calling it, St Catz), where we’re gearing up to receive students and parents later today.
Students are about to embark on a unique summer experience at St Catz, a striking architectural feat by Arne Jacobsen, and the University of Oxford’s youngest undergraduate college (est. 1962). Under the guidance of our dynamic, world-class team of teachers, and alongside international classmates, some students will get to know law in theory and in practice on the Law School Preparation programme, whilst others set about Broadening their Horizons.
This experience will go beyond the bounds of the classroom, as aside from learning about mooting and how to ace the LNAT, students will be treated to a range of extracurricular and social activities. They will have the opportunity to explore the history, architecture and winding waterways of Oxford city, peer into the cabinets of curiosities on display in its famous Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers museums, explore the grand house and gardens at Blenheim, and join the debate between good and evil at the London smash-hit musical ‘Wicked’. Students will also have the chance to unwind and celebrate with their new friends at mid-session and graduation parties (‘English Music Festival’ and ‘1950s’-themed).
Make sure that you bookmark the St Catz blog as we’ll be posting daily updates throughout the next two weeks, including photos of students enjoying lessons and activities each day. It’s going to be a wonderful two weeks, and you really won’t want to miss a thing.
