Next week, 22 lucky Seren students from the 11 hubs across Wales will spend four days at Jesus College Oxford in a tailored summer school programme to help give them a taster of university life.

The free summer school is exclusive to Seren students, and will focus on the theme of ‘Humanity in 100 years’, with lectures, seminars and debate sessions hosted by Oxford University professors. The aim of the sessions is to perfect the students’ writing, speaking and reasoning skills – as well as offer the chance to find out what it’s like to attend a top university, staying together in college halls and exploring the city to get the full Oxford experience.

Study topics will include a range of areas focusing on the future of humanity, from international trade and political communications to climatology and artificial intelligence, as well as a trip to the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford.

It’s not just about the lectures though – students will have free time to explore the picturesque campus and will dine in the historic Jesus College hall.

  • Annabelle Tamsin Blight
  • Ben Griffiths
