Develop a pre-university research project in Law
There’s more to the law than wigs and gowns. Law combines philosophy, history, logic, statistical analysis, and critical evaluation into one highly skilled subject with a plethora of sub-disciplines.
Supported by an Oxbridge university tutor, you can explore a variety of core branches of law – such as international law, constitutional law, corporate law, and many more – whilst considering both the academic and practical sides to this esteemed profession.
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!
