JCR student advice

It’s normal to feel anxious before coming to any university, let alone Oxford. I remember wondering after finishing my A-levels how I’d adjust to the workload of an Oxford student, that I wouldn’t be up to it. What I didn’t know was how common this is. There’s even a term for it – imposter syndrome. Take pride in the fact that if you’ve received an offer, the tutors know that you’ll thrive on the challenge of the course! Imposter syndrome is sometimes expressed as a fear that Oxford is not for ‘people like me’: know that SPC is a wonderfully diverse community and fundamentally welcomes everyone, which we can’t wait to do in October.

The most important thing you can do between now and October is rest: you’ll thoroughly deserve it after exams. You may receive some pre-reading after results day in August, but it’s important not to overwork yourself before term’s even started! There will also likely be some admin that you’ll need to do, like opening a student bank account, and filling in forms to get you enrolled into various College and University things. It’s boring, but needs to be done: make sure you check your emails regularly over the summer, especially in the days after results day.

Once your offer is confirmed, you’ll be emailed a Freshers’ Guide by the JCR Committee, which will have a wealth of information for before and during your first weeks in Oxford. Read it carefully, especially for what to pack and not to pack. I also found it very exciting to start hearing from students who I’d be meeting in the coming weeks! Speaking of which, the guide should have the contact details of JCR Reps: if you have any questions or concerns about anything, they’re an excellent port of call.

So, my advice to offer holders is to rest over the summer, to prepare both academically and logistically for your arrival, and to look forward to a wonderful Freshers’ Week when it comes!
