The last full day of the summer school was packed with celebration and reflection on the students’ time together. After lunch, students had free time to pick up some last minute souvenirs for their friends and family back home and get some final photos in front of Oxford landmarks and red telephone booths.
In the evening, parents and family joined the students in the Saïd Business School for our Graduation Ceremony, where certificates were awarded and everyone looked back at some of the highlights of the Academy.
Jana and Jack spoke about their Discover Business and Discover Technology courses respectively, and summarised their joint academic challenge as well as what they learned from their courses.
A barbecue dinner followed the Graduation Ceremony with everyone posing for photos and congratulating each other on a great two weeks. Following dinner, the students headed out to attend the traditional ceilidh dance with the fantastic Swinging Molly band. With spirits high, everyone returned to the accommodation and headed to bed for the last time before saying final goodbyes in the morning.
