Ychydig o ffigurau
Everyone who ran Seren International Online was so enthusiastic about the programme and it added structure to my life. There was academic challenge but it wasn’t stressful.Carla Seren International Online 2020 student
I was particularly impressed with the Seren International Online programme as it provided consistent, useful content over a long period. I feel the most prepared I have ever been for making my university applications after this programme.James Seren International Online student
First of all I wanted to say diolch because [the summer school is] bound to be the highlight of the COVID months and it beats internships I’ve done in the past. Needless to say there are some brilliant sixth formers here in Wales. It’s right up my alley and I’d be very pleased to work with you all again.”Tomos Wood University of Cambridge
“The Seren International Online programme was the most ambitious summer programme delivered in Jesus College’s 450 year history. I’m delighted that the programme was such a success for Seren students, our instructors and for the College! We look forward to working with Seren, Equal and other partners to expand and improve the programme further.”Dr Matthew Williams Access Fellow, Jesus College, University of Oxford
The connections I made were deep and unexpected; I keep in contact with almost everyone I met at YYGS Connect. I am sure I speak for all the Seren students when I say that this has been a truly trajectory-altering experience. My esteem and confidence have risen massively, allowing me to reach my potential.”James Seren-YYGS student
The diversity and complete unfamiliarity of the content was incredible, and I’ve never experienced anything like it. My YYGS experience was second-to-none. I cannot describe the love I had of it, and the confidence it gave me. I would say that, wherever possible, [Seren] should continue to offer this opportunity. I feel so much more prepared for university study. I realised that I was good enough to go to a top academic institution and that there will be people there who are like me, which I haven’t always found in high school. It also made me realise what the subject I want to study at university was by introducing me to a range of disciplines, and my aspirations have been raised dramatically.”Katie Seren-YYGS student
