OxNet in Durham

Successful OxNet applicants attended a Study Day at Ushaw College where they learned how to analyse gobbets of texts, debated the meaning of a ‘discipline’ and considered what truly makes a science or a humanity.  After a tour of the chapel and library filled with over 30,000 books, the day finished with a guide on university admissions and making successful applications to a highly selective university. Students learnt they are not climbing a ladder to get to where they are, but they are making a jigsaw which may sometimes seem unclear, but eventually connects to create a coherent and exciting whole.
