Six Notre Dame students were able to celebrate, after they were offered places to study at either Oxford or Cambridge University. This year’s high number of offers marks a continuation of the success of our students being offered Oxbridge places.
Four students have been offered places at Cambridge: Eneko Johnson-Legaria has received an offer to study History, Joe Marsden has been offered a place on a Chemical Engineering degree, Miriam Bolton-Gabrielsen has received an offer for Philosophy and Grace Parker has been offered a place to study Psychology. Two students have received offers from Oxford, Shuhaan Miah to study Mathematics and Caleb Dodd to study PPE.
Any student at Notre Dame who is interested in studying at Oxford, Cambridge or a Russell Group University has the opportunity to join OCRE (Oxford, Cambridge and Russell Group Experience), an enhancement group which is co-ordinated and delivered by English teacher Kitty Graham, supported by several other staff members at the college. Students in the group are offered guidance on application and interview, assistance in developing research and presentation skills and the opportunity to attend a conference with a visiting admissions tutor from Cambridge.
“I’m especially pleased with the number of offers our students have received this year,” says Kitty Graham, “Not only have many students received offers from either Oxbridge or Cambridge, but several others are looking forward to being offered places at some of the world’s top twenty-five universities, including Imperial College and University College, London. They all deserve their places and we are very proud of them!”
