This afternoon our Oxbridge Juniors met Jess Lister, a member of the Admissions team at Downing College in the University of Cambridge for tea and cakes.
Jess answered their questions about Oxbridge and university more widely. The students had excellent questions, from what makes Oxbridge different from other ‘Russell Group’ universities to the costs and finances of student life. There were a number of other intriguing questions such as whether Harry Potter was filmed at Cambridge to where the name Cambridge comes from.
We would like to thank Jess for the insight she gave our Oxbridge Juniors into studying at a prestigious institution such as Cambridge. As our students progress through the Nexus and CSMS programmes we will be supporting them to gain the skills and experiences necessary to be in the strongest possible position in their aspirations to apply to the best courses at the best universities in the world.
