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.

In 2019 the White Rose Project partnered with the Oxford German Network for the 2020 Oxford German Olympiadnationwide competition. We offered two prizes: one for VIth formers (or equivalent) and one for university students. The deadline for this year’s competition has now passed and entries are currently being judged. More information on the competition is available here.
