What’s the best thing about St Hilda’s? The community is one of the most supportive and fun in the whole University. It’s unique to St Hilda’s that friendships really do span across all years and that everyone supports each other all the time.

Where is your favourite place in College and why? The JCR - it has such a great atmosphere and really is the heart of all undergraduate activities. Plus it has the bar!

If you could raise money for one thing to help students what would it be? Access – ensuring all students from all backgrounds can enjoy all of what Oxford and St Hilda’s has to offer. This would be put towards scholarships or hardship funds to make sure everyone is fully supported by their College.

How have you benefited from the tutorial system? The clichés you hear about tutorials are not wrong! You’re having one hour every week to discuss your ideas with the people who are at the top of their field internationally, which is unique to the Oxbridge systems.
