Each year Christ Church hosts a free event introducing pupils to Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE) at Oxford.

What are we offering?

The day includes an introduction to Politics, Philosophy, and Economics at Oxford, taster sessions in each strand of the course, as well as a workshop on the Thinking Skills Assessment (the admissions test for PPE). The participants will have a chance to meet students who study PPE at Oxford, have lunch in the Christ Church Hall, and go on a tour of the college. The event will be free of charge and lunch will be provided. 

We would not 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.

Who is the event for?

We welcome applications from Year-12 students, whose gender identity includes woman, who are considering applying to study PPE at Oxford. If the event is oversubscribed we will be prioritising applications from students who attend state-maintained schools in the UK. Contextual information (e.g. whether students have been eligible for free school meals, if they have been in care or are young carers, if they are from an area of socio-economic disadvantage or low progression to higher education) will also be taken into account. Students are expected to attend unaccompanied if 16 or over.

How to apply?

Applications for Women in PPE Day 2023 are now closed.
