Queen’s welcomes school groups into the College on a regular basis and our Schools Liaison, Outreach and Recruitment Officer also regularly travels to our link areas of Cumbria, Blackpool, Blackburn with Darwen, Lancashire, Lewisham and Sutton to visit schools.
If you are a teacher at a school in one of these areas and would like to discuss working with Queen’s, please do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Visits to schools
During certain weeks of the year, Lauren visits schools in our link areas to deliver talks in house. Visits to schools usually involve workshops for Year 10, 11, 12 or 13, but we do offer workshops for younger students too.
Workshops might cover:
- The pros and cons of going to university
- University course choice and careers advice
- Choosing the right A-levels
- Oxbridge/Oxford explained
- Student Finance
- Mythbusting university/Oxford
- Personal statement advice
- Interview preparation
- Application process Q&A
Visits to Queen’s
We would highly encourage schools to come and see Queen’s and Oxford for yourself, in person! It is the best way to find out more about the university and have a look around. All state schools in the College’s link areas are entitled to bring groups of students to visit Queen’s.
These visits to the college will usually include:
- an interactive session about university
- a chance to meet current students
- a tour of the College
We are happy to adapt the exact nature of the event to suit the needs of your school.
Unfortunately, we cannot usually offer accommodation outside of our scheduled residential events for link area schools. There may be some exceptions to this. If the cost of a visit to Queen’s is a barrier for you, please get in touch with Lauren our Access Officer (email@example.com) to discuss options.
Independent school groups are welcome to visit the college as part of the University-wide Open Days or for self-guided tours.
