September Open Day Helpers 2022
On 16 September, Univ will be opening its doors to welcome prospective students as part of the University’s annual Open Days.
Getting to explore the Colleges, meet current students and chat with subject tutors is an important factor when it comes to deciding where to study, and we are thrilled that we can offer the opportunity to do that in person this year!
Our Open Days really wouldn’t be possible without our lovely team of student helpers here at Univ, who will be on hand during the day to show students around the College, chat to them about student life and take them along to our scheduled Meet the Tutors sessions and Admissions talks.
Two of this year’s student helpers, Hamzah and Nidhi, talk here about their experiences of the helping out with the Open Days:
“The Open Day was the first time I had ever seen Oxford, and the first time I’d ever set foot into a College. It was daunting, a little overwhelming but very, very exciting. I was really glad to be there at the Open Days in June to meet some of the prospective applicants, alleviate some of their worries and share their excitement. There’s no doubt that being able to walk around Univ in-person, picturing yourself studying here and meeting the undergraduates, is a vital part of the application process. Coming to the Open Day is when you realise that you could belong here and you absolutely have to apply. Suddenly, Univ isn’t the mystical ‘oldest college in Oxford’, but a thriving, friendly community with gorgeous buildings (and even a tortoise).” – Hamzah, Chemistry
“It was a great pleasure helping out at the Univ Access Open Day and interacting with so many prospective applicants about their academic passions and interest in our college community. All the staff and fellow student helpers were lovely and made the experience all the more enjoyable. I’m super grateful to have received the opportunity to help out!” – Nidhi, PPE
