High-Profile Speaker Programme for Studium 2021

12th October 2021

Studium returns to Winchester tomorrow with a morning of horizon-expanding lectures for all pupils. We are honoured to be hosting a fantastic array of speakers: historians and economists, adventurers and journalists, entrepreneurs and television producers, engineers, politicians and scientists.

Studium provides an invaluable experience for our pupils, hearing directly from leaders in all manner of fields, and gaining insight into areas far beyond the curriculum.

This year, we will also be joined by 50 pupils from local schools, and will welcome The Friends of Winchester College. We are very grateful to them all for taking time out of their working days to be with us.
