Hello there! I’m Jenyth, the current Jesus JCR Access Rep for 2016/2017. On this ‘Applying?’ section of our website, you can find a range of resources and info about Jesus College and Oxford in general. We want to give you a more informal view of life as a student here, and much of this information is student-produced. For example, we have student Q&A videos, a Humans of Jesus College project, alternative prospectuses and written student views. You can also visit any of our social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat (jesusfreshers) ) to see what students here get up to throughout term. If you have any questions about applying to Jesus or Oxford in general, feel free to contact myself, or the current Academic Affairs rep (Ryan Biscocho).

Humans of Jesus College
Humans of Jesus is a growing catalogue of some of the amazing, vibrant and loving people that make up this awesome community. You’ll hear stories and perspectives, whether funny or pithy, sorrowful or cheerful – this is a mere snapshot of who we are. We hope you enjoy reading these accounts as much as we’ve enjoyed documenting them.
You can follow us on all our social media linked just below or see our website!
