Our Oxpreppers are into the final stretch! Today was the last Minors class before our students depart on Thursday, and it’s been a hive of activity- students from all classes have been presenting some of their work from the last month (Quote from one of our students today: “A whole month?! Woah, time really does fly when you’re having fun, it feels like I’ve been here a week!” )
Our Studio Art minors displayed their creativity in both their still life paintings of fruit and a more contemporary pair of tennis shoes/sneakers/trainers (depending where in the world you hail from!)
Our Architecture students meanwhile held an exhibition of a variety of technical drawings, 3D models of real London buildings and more abstract sculptures.
Our Computer Science and App Design class used SQL databases to create a recipe bank. SQL is supremely useful and its been amazing to see their skills come together!
Creative Writing have been working on short stories, turning them into e-books, creating illustrations to accompany them and today they performed them for a symposium in the Junior Common Room.
The Law & Society class held a Moot Court today, holding speeches from both sides of the oralists and including excellent rebuttals.
Our Business and Finance students finished up their course with a trip out for dinner and plenty of smiles- they’ve gone through macroeconomics and investment so choosing the right venue was a tactical decision!
Our Drama Minors enjoyed the delights of the Council Chamber in the Town Hall (more will be said about the fabulous Major play of Julius Caesar later on, performed in combined effort with our sister program the Oxford Tradition).
The Psychology students took part in intense discussions regarding major questions in the field of psychology today.
A huge thank you also to Leonie, the Psychology faculty member, for her efforts in compiling OxPrep’s first ever Scientific Journal! The OxBrain features some seriously impressive papers from each of our Psychology students, including sophisticated statistical analysis and hypothesis testing. Each student who is an author in the paper will have their own copy.
Our Speech and Debate minors enjoyed the end of their month of academic work by putting their debate skills to the test over more lighthearted topics, such as Queen v Justin Bieber, and where is definitively the best place to get lunch in town.
The Engineering minors got to present their Glider project!
Genetics and Biotech have been looking at microogranisms and cells (we admit this is a bit beyond our bloggin admin team, but it all looks very cool).
The last day for the students is tomorrow, where they will have their final dance and closing ceremony at the historic Sheldonian theatre. We’ve been so amazed to see what our students have done over the last month and we hope that when they make their way back home they will share their stories with you too!
