Staff at Royal Wootton Bassett Academy Sixth Form say their students will soon have the very exciting opportunity to attend University College Taster Days in Oxford.

These taster days will be brought to students from Royal Wootton Bassett Academy's Sixth Form, courtesy of University College. 

University College is a constituent college of the University of Oxford in England, and the Sixth Form are said to take great pride in being able to offer the students these taster days.  

Some of the taster day classes on offer include Law and PPE, Classics, English and History, Medical Sciences, Philosophy Plus Science Programme, Physics, and the Department of Physics Y12 Online Masterclass.  

The University also offers students a programme which will run from April - December, to help students prepare for university and explore any subjects that may interest them.  

A spokesperson for Royal Wootton Bassett Academy Sixth Form said: "Higher education and employment is of the upmost importance to us here, and it is at the forefront of everything we do. We feel the Sixth Form is at an advantage with these taster days being something that we are able to offer students."
