All of the students have settled comfortably into their new morning routines. With a hearty breakfast all together in the main Queen’s College dining room to fuel the morning’s learning, the students split up into their tutorial groups to undertake a busy first morning of lessons.
The lunch hour in the main college dining hall enabled students to reunite with their peers from other classes and catch up on what they had learnt. Some students remain wonderstruck by the grandeur of their surroundings and find the experience of dining particularly novel. Afternoon workshops were run to complete the day’s academic commitments before the students were granted free time in the afternoon.
Many of the students utilised their free time by exploring the city centre and taking in all of the beautiful surroundings. Many were keen to visit a fan favourite, Christ Church College, being the inspiration and film set for much of Hogwarts School from the illustrious Harry Potter movies.
After dinner, the students geared up for quiz night held in Queen’s College JCR. The competition was fierce and acted as a fantastic opportunity for students to show off intellectually and demonstrate how much they had memorised about Oxford.
There were some very weary faces after such a busy first day! The prospect of repeating it again in the morning left many students ready to hit the hay and recharge their batteries ready for a full morning of lessons and their insight masterclass in the afternoon. This will feature a leading industry expert to conduct interactive workshops for the students to enjoy all afternoon.
More updates to follow tomorrow!
