English

Dates of course: Sunday 3rd July - Wednesday 6th July 2022, Sunday 10th July - Wednesday 13th July 2022 (students will only attend one or the other of these 4-day residential courses)

Working with Shakespeare’s The Tempest, you will attend lectures and sessions that introduce you to historical contexts, critical approaches, and film adaptations of The Tempest. You will be encouraged to develop your own critically informed response to the play, and in addition to the study of The Tempest you will have the space to reflect on your own reading interests, learn about poetry analysis, and find out how to explore texts you have not encountered before.

During the week, you will learn more about the English course at Oxford, and have the opportunity to ask questions of our academics and student ambassadors. We want you to enjoy some new literary experiences, and to extend your confidence in exploring different perspectives by building upon your school studies in order to help you make a competitive application to the University.
