  • Know Your Oxford Icon

    Charlotte Laycock knows her Oxford. Do you?

    Why did you agree to narrate Know Your Oxford?

    “I decided to take part in the tour to help produce a great resource for new students to the University of Oxford to use. This resource would have been really helpful in my first year to orientate where things are in the town and I think will be a great addition to the Freshers' Week timetable.”

    What was your experience like when you thought about applying to Oxford, and then starting here?
