Each year Christ Church offers study days introducing pupils to subjects taught at Oxford. Read on to find out about our Geography Study Day.

Geography Study Day

The Geography Study Day includes an introduction to Physical and Human Geography at Oxford, taster sessions in these main strands of the course, as well as a workshop on the admissions test for Geography. 

Participants have a chance to meet students who study Geography at Oxford, have lunch in the Christ Church Hall, and go on a tour of the college. The event is free of charge and lunch will be provided.

Attending our Study Days

Who is the event for?

For our Geography Study Day we welcome applications from Year 12 students at state schools who are considering applying to study Geography at Oxford. If the event is oversubscribed we'll prioritise applications from students based on the following contextual factors:

  • Your POLAR postcode score is 1 or 2
  • Your ACORN postcode score is 4 or 5
  • You have been eligible for free school meals
  • Your parents did not go to university
  • You are from an ethnic background that is underrepresented at Oxford
  • You have been, or currently are, in care
  • You are a young carer
  • You attend a non-selective school

Students are expected to attend unaccompanied if 16 or over. Please ask for permission from your school if attending will involve missing any lessons.

Travel support

We wouldn't want the cost of travelling to Oxford to prevent students from participating and are able to offer support with travel costs to UK students who have been in care, are young carers, have been eligible for free school meals, or who would otherwise be unable to attend.

How to apply

Applications for our 2023 Study Days are now closed, but if you want to find out more about life at Christ Church and Oxford, why not attend one of our Open Days
