Within the Broadening Horizons programme, students in the economics class put their brains to work discovering market structures and integral workings. Meanwhile, the Creative Writing class found inspiration from the majestic surroundings of Queen’s College to base their writings on.
After a light morning rain shower, the afternoon brought glorious sunshine – more characteristically unpredictable British weather! The students trampled through the cloisters of Magdalen College and moved around the deer park – where a few Bambi look-alikes were scampering around in the sun.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the river, the punting groups could be seen zigzagging from bank to bank, struggling to keep the boats moving straight. Punting has most definitely been a firm favourite amongst the students, with some already talking about going again in their free time!
Another group of students took a trip through time, at the Pitt Rivers Museum and the Oxford Natural History Museum. Despite the heat, they were fascinated by the exhibition, especially the shrunken heads!
After an evening meal back in the Queen’s College dining hall, the students partook in a salsa dancing class, in which a lively and electric atmosphere was matched by some superb dancing. Students enjoyed the opportunity to get in some dancing practice ahead of the ‘Narnia’ themed mid-session party at Kingston Bagpuize tomorrow night, which has really got the students excited!
