Student life in Oxford is much more than just work! Here are just some of the things you could do to fill a spare hour or two.
Joanna: I think it's a big mistake to think that if you come here you're just going to be doing work all the time because there's lots of activities you can get involved in.
Adoma: There are loads of societies and committees you can join.
Nikki: We were able to apply to the Dodd Fund for a college travel grant, and I received £300 from that. We went out for about three weeks to Sri Lanka and taught in Kamala on the East coast.
Tom: Jesus College is fantastic for offering support for activities, especially sport but also the Arts. I'm involved quite heavily in athletics and cross-country.
Ivor: I was boat club captain this last year for Jesus College and I found rowing a great way to get involved within college. Jesus has its own boathouse, where we have boats ranging from a single scull to a coxed eight, and anyone can use them.
Gareth: I play football for the Jesus College first team, and we came second in the top league this year, so generally the standard is quite high. If people want to play just for fun or enjoyment, they can do that as well.
Joanna: There's other sports that you can do at college, so I played netball, lacrosse, rounders and some volleyball. It's very informal.

Ivor: This year I started an orchestra for the annual Turl Street Arts Festival. It's a festival held between Exeter, Lincoln and Jesus colleges, where there's drama, music, poetry and art all going on.
