VIDEO: Messages from current students about the Open Days

25 June 2018

Worcester’s incoming JCR president Ephraim Conteh and other students who have completed their first year have urged prospective students to come to the University of Oxford’s Open Days, which will take place on Wednesday 27 June, Thursday 28 June and Friday 14 September.

Ephraim, originally from London, said: ‘See what life is like and get a glimpse of what the future could hold for you.’

Worcester will welcome students, parents, carers and teachers to meet staff and students, and provide a tour of the College and its beautiful gardens. Anyone who is thinking of applying to Oxford can sample the atmosphere that makes student life here so special.

Undergraduate Jack Nunn, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, said: ‘My first experience of Worcester is that it is a very inclusive place. It’s somewhere for everyone.’

Meanwhile, Laura Smith from Scotland also has encouraging advice for students. She said: ‘You are surrounded by people who are just the most interesting I have ever met in my life.'

The Open Day programme at Worcester will be as follows:

9.00-10.00 Refreshments and Q&A with the Tutor for Admissions

10.00-17.00 College tours/ information desk

12.35-13.00 Welcome/general talk by the Tutor for Admissions

13.00-14.30 Meetings with subject tutors or subject panels

13.00-13.45 Meeting for parents with Tutor for Admissions or Provost

Charli Hopkins, Access and Admissions Officer at Worcester, said: ‘Worcester takes pride in its friendly atmosphere, 26 acres of beautiful grounds and its superb location in the centre of the city of Oxford. We have a sports field onsite, award-winning buildings and, typically, we offer undergraduate accommodation for three years. We aim to provide a supportive and social environment, and welcome applicants from all backgrounds. If you love your subject, we’d be delighted to meet you at our Open Days!’

Coming to an Open Day is the best way to find out more about studying at Oxford but prospective applicants are welcome to visit at other times too. No appointment is needed on Open Days, but for visits at other times of the year, please contact Worcester’s Admissions Office on admissions@worc.ox.ac.uk
