In this short Welsh language film, aired in August 2018 on S4C’s Heno programme, students and collaborators discuss their experiences of the Seren Network and Jesus College Summer School. Our 2018 Summer School was in collaboration with the Welsh Government’s Seren Network. Seventy-four students attended, all of them from state schools, and many from some of the most deprived areas in Europe. The School was a unique inter-disciplinary programme offering lectures, seminars and tutorials on a theme of ‘The Meaning of Life’. Our aim was to broaden the participants’ appreciation of the wide range of courses on offer, as well as instilling a sense of how different disciplines overlap in tackling similar problems. Moreover, we wanted students to experience life at Jesus College and leave safe in the knowledge that the University of Oxford is welcoming and open to everyone with the academic ability, regardless of background.
