Develop a pre-university research project in Geography
Do you want to understand the geography of the world and how humans interact with it? Do you often wonder just how big and different it is and how different cultures adapt in a different way to the environment and resources at their disposal?
The Geography Oxbridge Online Research Programme will allow you to explore different areas of the field, developing a good understanding of specific topics you’re passionate about through your own research project.
What is the Oxbridge Online Research Programme?
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme (‘OORP’) is designed for students who want to enhance their personal research and study skills in preparation for university, whilst also developing deeper knowledge in their chosen field.
Led by your personal tutor, you will undertake a research project assessed at university-level and receive regular 1:1 supervisions from an expert academic from Oxford or Cambridge University.
This course is ideal for students wanting to gain invaluable experience for writing a dissertation or thesis at university, whilst also familiarising themselves with the demands of an Oxbridge degree. Alternatively, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience a subject you have never studied before!
