Mock Oxbridge study room #oxbridge #universityapplications

This sixth form college has taken an interesting step towards study. It has recreated a mock Don’s study, complete with wood panels and rustic furnishings, apparently in order to inspire students.

With the interview process posing an exceptionally intimidating atmosphere for the majority of students, this is an interesting way of simulating the actual environment that students will have their tutorials in. But does it justify the 10k spending? Perhaps it is the prospect of the fierce intellect about to interview them, rather than the surroundings, which perpetuate most interviewee anxiety?
