The students at Univ were excited and raring to go as lessons began on campus yesterday. The day began with breakfast, followed by morning lessons in the Town Hall. The incredible history and heritage of Univ, the oldest college in either Oxford or Cambridge, was not lost on the students, some of whom commented on how impressed they were by the stunning architecture.
Lunch followed the first lessons of the course, just before everyone headed off to their first excursion of the tour – the City of Oxford!
The tour was comprehensive and well organised, with the team packing in as many of the major sights as they could. This included a perusal of the other major colleges as well as some stand-out locations from the town itself.
However, the team decided to go above and beyond a glance at the scenery, with the trip concluding at the iconic Bodleian Library. The building, perhaps most commonly represented by its striking dome, contains over 13 million printed items. It is one of Oxford University’s most famous, and we are pleased to report is just as beautiful on the inside as it is outside.
The students did not pass up the opportunity to take photographs during the day, some of which you may catch on our Social Media.
Having been familiarised with their new surroundings, all signs point forward as the students’ head into the rest of the week; and with another busy schedule planned for today at Univ, there’s no time to waste!
