The exam and award boards may be over, and Wimbledon’s almost finished, but the university’s work continues. Recruitment and outreach events take place throughout the year. We had Open Days on June 6 and 22, and met lots of very nice people. June 6 was on the quiet side, as expected around A level exam time;* but at the English Literature subject talk on June22 it was standing room only. Our thanks go out to our visitors, prospective students, their families and friends. We hope we’ll see you in September.
It wasn’t really sunny and warm at the Open Days. This is s stock photo.
Also in June, sixth-formers from the Cotswold School, who joined us for our first English Literature Sixth-Form conference back in March, returned to Francis Close Hall for a study day on research and library skills. The Humanities Subject Librarian, Mrs Rachel Reid, ran a workshop designed to introduce A-level students to the concept and academic practice of using secondary sources ibn their work – an essential tool for degree-level study.
