Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford
Application deadline: 6th June 2016
The aim of the Foundation Year is to provide teaching and support that will increase the academic confidence of students, enabling them to progress onto degree courses at top universities. Currently there are under-represented groups of students in Higher Education, typically those whose background generates obstacles to their school achievements. As entry to top universities is largely determined by school attainment, academically able students amongst this population miss out on places.
The LMH Foundation Year is designed to take academically able students from under-represented groups and through a combination of academic and personal support, enable them to fulfill their potential. The students will take core modules which focus on the development of their academic writing, critical thinking and study skills in addition to personal development and their use of digital technologies. Subject specific modules will run alongside these core modules, giving the students an opportunity to experience the satisfaction of learning in an academic environment.
