A group of 40 Cardinal Wiseman students from Year 10, 11 and 12 visited Jesus College at the University of Cambridge.
It was an excellent way for our Highest Able students to find out about studying at such prestigious institution. Students had the opportunity to experience an English Literature lecture and to immerse themselves into the reality of university life and the particular style of learning at Cambridge. As well as tour around Jesus College, there was a lovely walk into town and a visit to the famous building of the Law Faculty and a Law lecture. Our students also chatted to the university ambassadors. They also met four of our own alumni who are currently studying at the University of Cambridge. The highlight of the day was having lunch in beautiful surroundings of the Jesus College dining hall. At the end of the visit there was a talk on the topic of admissions process and the difficult reality of what is truly needed to study at Cambridge. Everyone understood that it was time to step it up if they wished to earn their place at the top university and have a fighting chance of success.
