Meet a postgraduate

John's is a friendly, exciting and unique academic community to be a part of. Our recently refurbished accommodation is arguably the best on the Bailey. Weekly formal dinners are free and often followed by drinks in our famous "cellar bar" as a fun and quirky start to a great night with friends. Being small means that there is a fantastic social life and sense of community, yet we punch well above our weight in student societies and sport, regularly coming first in the inter-college "sports points per person" table. The inspiring and caring staff work tirelessly to support and challenge every student during their time here, ensuring that all "Johnians" think of university as a memorable and life changing experience.
