Decisions about the application

Tutorial and collegiate system

Oxford provides the course I want to study. It is closer to London, and a nicer place as well.

The best Materials tutors available. Largest undergraduate library. Liked the open day.

Questions surrounding AS curriculum asked.

Asked about structures of crystals. Device experiments to determine identity of unknown metal; why is glass transparent?

Shirt and black shoes


Very friendly, though slightly too crowded. Thought provoking place.

Good rooms, though near to major roads.

Quality of food is dissatisfactory. Edible but not great.

Very friendly, highly able academically but not monster-like. Induces you to answer during interviews, very patient

Students from all backgrounds, very easy-going.

Looking back
