Now three months after the Roadshow, we have gathered feedback from schools and are really excited to share with you some of the comments we recieved. 
  • "I think their opinion of the application process changed as it was demystified for them"
  • "Meeting the ambassadors was really useful for them to see that they were 'ordinary' young people"
  • "I think the presentation dispelled some outdated stereotypical impressions of what Oxford students are like and what the university is looking for in its applicants"
  • "The pupils felt that the students were approachable, and I felt that they did an excellent job of selling Oxford as both an aspirational and achievable goal"
  •  The (example) interview questions were very interesting and the students felt proud to have been able to give responses to them"
  • "The pupils were very positive and felt more informed"
  • "The example of interview questions (was) very useful - in particular it engaged one of the less attentive boys in the audience who was evidently keen to discuss the question posed, despite perhaps considering himself "too cool for school"!"
The Roadshow was a great success, and once again we'd like to say thank you to everyone who supported us.
