A visit to Trinity College and grounds

 

 

 

The day started with a lovely 5 minute walk to Trinity College from Cherwell house. 

 

Trinity College is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in England. The college was founded in 1555 by Sir Thomas Pope, on land previously occupied by Durham College, home to Benedictine monks from Durham Cathedral.

Despite its large physical size, the college is relatively small in terms of student numbers at approximately 400. It was founded as a men's college and has been coeducational since 1979.Trinity College has produced three British prime ministers.

When we arrived at the college a very informative presentation was delivered by the Access Officer. Students got to know about the structure of Oxford University and the college system in particular. The university’s admission criteria and procedure was explained in details. Our students were given a ‘real life’ account of applying to Oxford University by  one of the second year undergraduate students, BA History at Trinity College. Cherwellians were able to pose their own questions in the informal conversation. Lunch was provided in the Dining Hall. This was followed by a tour of the college grounds. Our students then walked to the Natural History Museum for a session on Biological evolution: ideas and theories. Students had a very informative and enjoyable day.
