Selwyn’s new students took part in the matriculation photograph in Old Court on October 2nd to mark the start of the academic year. Freshers were formally welcomed the previous afternoon by the Master and Senior Tutor, and this week they have induction sessions in the college and across the university.
Most of our 123 new undergraduates are from the United Kingdom, but we now have the full list of nationalities which shows the global reputation of the university and the college. Countries represented in addition to Britain are Australia, Austria, China, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Italy, New Zealand, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden and the USA. Of the 94 UK students, 71% went to state-maintained schools.
Our new graduates represent an even greater range of countries: the United States, Azerbaijan, Italy, South Africa, Netherlands, Spain, Mexico, Ireland, China, Lebanon, Latvia, Germany, Cyprus, Turkey, Singapore, Spain, Belgium, Hungary, India, Norway, France, Canada, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, Austria, South Korea, Syria and New Zealand. They joined together for the first time in their matriculation dinner in Hall on September 30th.
We wish them all every success in their time at Selwyn.
