Work with Schools

The White Rose Project supports the access and outreach programmes at the University of Oxford. We therefore currently offer workshops for schools on the White Rose, suitable within the context of History or Modern Languages. Workshops can also be combined with a short information session on studying at Oxford. Previous workshops have included lecture or classroom-style formats, focusing on the history of the group and/or their resistance writings, with teaching in English, German, or a combination of the two. We hope the project may provide ways to connect with the university and that examples of students’ work and experiences at Oxford may prove informative and inspiring. For more information or to request a workshop, please contact Dr Alex Lloyd.

Oxford German Open Day 2021 | Here is a handout from the session on translating German at Oxford, held on 27 February 2021. It presents some theories from translation studies, as well as examples to help you think about approaches to translation.

In 2020 the White Rose Project partnered with the Oxford German Network for the Oxford German Olympiad nationwide competition. We offered two prizes: one for sixth formers (or equivalent) and one for university students. The winning entries are available to read here.
