Well, as I have promised - a short recap of Open Day at HMC.
There were about 15 of us who could make it, so only about one third of the group that is going to start in October (including undergraduates, postgraduates and clinical psychology students). Having arrived at 10am, we all had an hour or so to meet each other and current HMC students, who were very friendly and made is feel at home. After that, there was a talk from the Principal and Senior Tutor, who both were very lovely and delivered highly inspirational speeches. Apparently there were 2000 applications made this year, so we all should be very proud of getting a place! Afterwards the Academic Administrator gave a talk about nuts and bolts of living at HMC, finances and etc. We all got a booklet detailing the rules of the college, as well as accomodation booking forms and etc. to take home with us.
We were then rushed into HMC, where the current JCR president and other members of the comittee talked to us about student life at the college, societies, things they do and etc. It was great fun and I really felt at home.
We then had lunch (great food, by the way!), got back to JCR and then went to met our subject tutors. I was the only law student to attend the open day, so I had a really nice chat with one of the tutors who interviewed me back in December.
It was a great day and I now cannot wait for October to come!
P.S. Academic Administrator will be sending out freshers packs at the end of August, with more information on academic wear, dates and etc.
If anyone got any specific questions about the open day, please ask!
