Develop a pre-university research project in Philosophy
Did you know that Philosophy is an academic subject that is rarely taught in typical high schools? However, Philosophy is one of the fastest-growing subject fields and, through the teaching of logic and reason, it can be used to help describe the world we live in.
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme will allow you to dive into the world of Philosophy, through the expert teaching of moral philosophy, metaphysics and more. Interested in Philosophy and how it helps humans wrap their head around problems using logic and reason, then look no further than the ‘OORP’!
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!
I was afraid that the tutorials would be too much like lectures – the teacher gives a monologue and I do not have any opportunity to talk. It turned out to be exactly the opposite. My tutor was always asking me questions and probing my knowledge. I loved that I got to think out loud and I gained a lot of confidence doing so. The tutor never gave long lectures but instead focused on filling the gaps in my knowledge and took the topic even further.
