What Really Matters 3 - The SHAPE of things to come

12.30 - 14.00

In the third discussion of our series What really matters, we focus on a new initiative that aims to promote and celebrate the social sciences, humanities and arts. SHAPE (Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts for People and the Economy) aims to emulate the influence and reputation held by STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and maths – in secondary education and academic research.



In the first of a new series of online discussions for students, teachers and the general public called ‘Discussing What Really Matters,’ Jesus College is hosting a Forum on Race and Education this Friday 12th June at 10.30am.

The Forum will explore key issues around race and education in the 21st Century. 

Celebrating St David’s Day

We’ve got a wonderful weekend of celebrations ahead as Jesus College marks St David’s Day – a very important day in our events calendar. St David is, of course, the patron saint of Wales and we are known as the ‘welsh college’ thanks to our founding in 1571 by Queen Elizabeth I, at the request of a Welsh lawyer and clergyman, Hugh Price. We maintain strong links with Wales through our thriving welsh schools access programmes and are proud that around 15% of our current undergraduates are welsh.

Media Panel on Oxbridge and Wales: a missing link?

Ship Street Centre Lecture Theatre, Jesus College Oxford

A panel of experts and distinguished Welsh figures in the field of journalism, higher education and public affairs will tackle the story of Wales and Oxbridge. They offer their unique perspectives on the historical links between Oxbridge and Wales, why there seems to be an admissions crisis from the country, and why Welsh students should study at Oxbridge. Please join us for lively discussion and debate!
