Welcome to Staircase12, University College Oxford's online hub of resources for students aiming high at school and thinking about applying to top universities. You'll find plenty of resources to help you develop your interests, book reviews from current undergrads to help you 'read around' your subject, ideas for stretching yourself beyond the school syllabus (now an essential for entry to highly selective universities) and some stuff about student life at Univ for good measure.


You can navigate your way round with the toolbar above, or just check out the 'latest updates' below to find the latest material. Don't forget to follow us on twitter!
