What does the scholarship mean to you?
The scholarship has meant that I can attend Oxford, and be part of lively community of scholars which extends beyond the classroom.
Taking up an offer at Oxford exposes you to a wide range of ideas and experiences – there is always a seminar to attend, a conference to observe.
Being at College means you are constantly in the company of people from all over the world, from all walks of life, studying all manner of things that you couldn’t possibly imagine!
What do you value about being a student at Kellogg College?
Kellogg College has been the most welcoming place. I got off the plane not knowing a single person in Oxford, and Kellogg has made me feel right at home.
Our College MCR (the Middle Common Room) is very active – every week there are multiple events. As a graduate college with a large number of international, part-time, and mature age students, there’s a real diversity in the student body which will give you an experience you’ll never forget.
And, of course, staff at Kellogg College are always there to lend a hand and make it a community of which you can be proud to be a member.
Kellogg definitely has the best food of any College!
