JCR student advice

Before coming to Oxford, I think what caused most of my anxiety was uncertainty. Though I had an offer from Oxford for a subject I loved and was perfectly capable of doing well in, my background and perception of Oxford still led me to doubt whether this was true. I wondered whether I would meet people who were at all similar to me and whether I would flourish here. This was a main worry of mine, on top of the typical concerns of any student before going to university like making friends, settling in, and workload.

I found that preparing before you go to university is the best way to minimise anxiety as much as possible. I made a packing list and bought anything I needed to in the weeks before leaving home. I also made sure I completed all the relevant preparatory work I was set. As I mentioned before, meeting people with whom I would 'connect' with was a worry of mine, but we made a group chat on social media for offer holders and got to know each other before we moved in. I would also say to ask as many questions as possible – most of our conversations on the group chats weren’t about where everyone was from, but the specific brand of kettle everyone was bringing (a conversation that genuinely couldn’t get more exciting(!)) – but this again reduces any uncertainty. Before moving to Oxford, we were also put in touch with our ‘college families’. This is a mentoring system where you’re given a ‘college parent’ in the year above you, who does the same subject as you – someone you can ask plenty of questions and is an immediate friendly face when you move in. Personally, preparing as much as possible helped me feel ready for the transition to university - JCR Outreach Rep.
