    Does anyone have any suggestions for work experience/jobs/programmes for anyone looking to apply to Oxford and do PPE (Politics, Philosophy and Economics)??

    Thanks.

    Getting excellent grades are much more important than tokenistic work experiences - particularly as the admissions tutors realise not all students have the same ability to pursue relevant and meaningful work experiences, and if every MPs child was given a free pass because mummy or daddy can hook them up with being a tea-person in the house of lords, that wouldn't be very fair would it?

    Don't do work experience or volunteering or otherwise to try and conform to some imaginary tick box. If it's something you're interested in, and want to do, do it.
