The day is for female students who aspire to study Law or Politics at university.

The event is split into two parts with a round-table panel where academics from law and political science will present of varied topics under the theme ‘Gender Gap in Law and Politics’. We will consider questions such as: What unanticipated rsk does Brexit pose for women? and What challenges do women face in the fields of law and politics?

You will take part in a citizen’s jury to look at the implications of Brexit for different section of society with the opportunity to share your opinions and build your knowledge on how Brexit will impact your future.

Target Oxbridge: Supporting More Black Students Than Ever

When Rare launched Target Oxbridge back in 2012, we did so on a shoestring budget, using the network of our own Oxbridge team members to support and develop a handful of talented black candidates. Last year, we offered our full programme of support to 45 students as they went through the Oxbridge admissions process, but after an increase in funding from both Oxford and Cambridge Universities, we will be able to recruit 160 black students to the programme for 2018.

“It’s amazing to hear how such an invaluable programme has reached new heights!” says Cambridge undergrad Victoria Chris, studying Natural Sciences at Fitzwilliam College. “Target Oxbridge was definitely one of the main reasons why I got into Cambridge. Through the mentoring and seminars, I was encouraged to find a new way to express my ideas and thoughts.” The development programme, which runs over the course of a year, involves residential visits, academic sessions, and mentoring by current and former Oxbridge students, including Rare staff.
