Old Georgians return to offer invaluable advice
In the last week, four Old Georgians have returned to the college to give invaluable advice to current Fifth Year students and Sixth Formers.
Firstly, it was a pleasure to welcome Conrad Lippold (OG 2012), who is studying medicine at Cambridge and who came in to have an informal chat with our potential medic students.
This was followed by Dr Alex Christie (OG 2012), who gave a fascinating presentation to Fifth Year and Lower Sixth students interested in following in his footsteps.
The course at Cambridge demands six years of study for Conrad, whilst Alex has just qualified at Bristol University and is just about to leave for Uganda and South Africa before starting a placement in Liverpool.
Then it was the turn of John Grieve (OG 2016), who is studying Oriental Studies at Queen's College, Oxford and Liberty Roberts (OG 2016), who is studying Geography at St Andrew’s. John and Liberty hosted a question and answer session about the application process and what life at university is really like. John then stayed on to answer further questions from both Fifth Year and Lower Sixth students interested in applying to Oxbridge.
These sorts of visits give current students the opportunity to ask any burning questions they might have, to learn first hand what university is like and what you need to do to get there and to learn from former students who have been in the exact same position as them.
