    I'm a current Oxford English student and I'm thinking of making a blog about Oxford, with the aim of giving prospective applicants information about applying.

    If you are or were a prospective applicant, what information did you find particularly hard to find? I know when I was applying I'd have liked to see what a typical 'day in the life' of an English student looked like, as well as some example interview questions. Any other ideas?

    Hopefully I'll be able to create something that's useful

    Well this seems extremely unreasonable/hard to do but an actual way to visually see what accommodation, libraries and what the what the college looks like behind the facade. On youtube, there is really only Joe Miles Magdalen tour which actually shows accommodation and JCR. There is also the alt prospectus but that is in words, not actual photos that are unbiased because "my college is the best college". I know it would be really hard, but even if you just took photos of your college and made a post that would be pretty cool. (This may already exist and I just haven't stumbled across it)
Do you think parents should charge rent?
