Students' Reactions


What Andrew Hobson's students from Magdalen College have said of the pilot schemes:

"We were comfortable and well cared for. Most importantly, we had a tutor and mentor there to help us. In effect, I felt as though everything in the house was geared to support our studies. Because of its small scale our Naxos Reading Party had an intense efficiency coupled with a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, which in my experience had not been equalled."
Daniel Carall-Green, Fourth Year Classicist

"It has been an utter privilege to experience the Hobson Foundation at the beginning and we are delighted that it is set to offer this benefit to so many more in the future. The overall impression of our stay was said in one syllable: fun. Not fun in the hollow, silly sense of the word, but the well-rounded, full-bodied, wholemeal brand which can only result from having an engaging, exciting and stimulating time. The academic progress of the group went hand in hand with a most satisfying personal development of its members."
David Gregory, Third Year Classicis
