It was a fascinating Tuesday for our Catz students, as they had some really interesting lessons in the morning before heading off to London for an extra special evening activity! There was also a chance to work in collaboration with another Oxford cohort, which was welcomed by all.
It alternated between sunny and cloudy on campus but, despite the changeable weather, there was no variation in the students’ effort levels, as they embraced another day of challenges. They are all looking terrifically placed to complete their courses in impressive style at the end of the week.
Because the students have their work well under control, they have been able to participate in some incredible practical sessions. This was the case for the Medical Biology class, as they got hands-on with a heart dissection. With the help of some expert guidance, they were able to gain some great information on the process and see first hand how the heart works.
They were joined for the exercise by some of the Queen’s college students, and welcomed the opportunity to work together with them. Before long, it was scalpels at the ready and they began to dissect the sheep hearts which they had been given. Nobody was perturbed by the blood, and the class was a hit with everyone!
The day’s excitement wasn’t done there, as the students then boarded coaches to head off to London’s West End, renowned for its theatres, for dinner and then a show. The evening was a great cultural experience and the students arrived back on campus tired but inspired by a brilliant day.
