Pembroke College has recently hosted tours for its 2021 undergraduate freshers. We are delighted that we were able to hold these one-off tours in person for 60 future Pembrokians. All the students in attendance were visiting college for the first time after experiencing Open Days and interviews virtually.

OxNet Alumni of 2019-2020 receive university offers
Congratulations to last year’s graduates from the OxNet Access and Outreach Programme, who have recently started receiving offers from their universities of choice.
The OxNet Programme, led by Pembroke Access Fellow Peter Claus and Co-ordinator Mr Felix Slade, collaborates with schools and communities across the UK to assist state school students in preparation for university applications and study. Year 12 students who participated in OxNet’s academic initiatives and courses during the 2019-20 academic year have started to receive offers of study, with many being offered places at Oxford and Cambridge, as well as other top universities including Durham, Warwick and Newcastle.
As a group, the students have gone on to pursue a wide range of academic disciplines following graduation from the OxNet programme, with everything from Physics to Geography, and Medicine to Languages being amongst their chosen studies.
We’re delighted that a number of OxNet graduates from our hub schools around the UK have chosen Pembroke as the next step of their academic journey; Sofia Panourgias (Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School) Olivia Walsh (Lymm High School) Niall Hall (Holy Cross College) Madgey Thompson (Priestley College) Annie Gaskell (St. John Rigby Sixth Form College) and Cassie Lloyd-Watson (Sir John Deane's Sixth Form College) have won offers of places to start undergraduate courses here in the autumn.
