Hi all!

This is a thread for all people applying to study at Jesus College, Oxford.

I’ll start off the thread!

I’ve applied to study Geography @ Jesus - mainly chose it because of the lovely tutor on Zoom on open day and friendly atmosphere.

Experimental psychology @ Jesus
It’s a small and pretty college. Also the library opens 24/7!

Hi, I’ve applied for English Lit! I’ve chosen Jesus because I did a summer school there & it’s the welsh college (and I’m welsh!)

the youtube account is quite helpful and (i think the person is) the admissions tutor seems very friendly

Is it the man in the glasses? If so, he’s the admissions Tutor for PPE

Edit: just realised he’s not wearing glasses in his videos. I mean the blonde man, I recognise him from the summer school 😂

Applying for philosophy and linguistics (PPL)
I chose Jesus cause I wanted an old, central college, that offered my course (already not that many when you take those criteria into account) that wasn't too right wing or public school ish like ChCh or queen's (I know these are stereotypes but I know a great many Oxford professors personally and they can be v true!) and all things considered (tutors and tutor specialisations too) it seemed like the best choice! The amazing Dr Matt Williams over on their YouTube channel finally tipped the balance in favour of Jesus over Univ

I’m applied for History and Politics. (Anyone else? - if so, how did u find the HAT, written work, etc...tell me everything lol!!!)

Like Everyone else I think I changed my college preferences heaps until I watched Matt Williams on YouTube and decided it was the best college for me.

But doubt I will get interview lol, I’ve stuffed up almost every stage of the application process so far and feel wayyyyy out of my depth haha.
