Hi! I’m David, a second-year Computer Science student, and the JCSU Access and Higher Education Officer for 2018.
As Access Officer, I am responsible for outreach and widening participation, as well as admissions, in particular supporting prospective applicants from backgrounds traditionally less well represented in the University of Cambridge. I am also responsible for making sure that Jesuans can fully participate in the college community regardless of background or circumstance, and I am there to represent their concerns and needs to the college and other relevant parties.
I work closely with the Jesus College Admissions Office to help to organise and run our Access Tours in our link areas – Tyne & Wear, Brent and Ealing, and Westminster – as well as our Access Residentials, open days, and regular talks. I am also the link between students and the college on any matters relating to higher education, whether that be bursaries, scholarships or otherwise.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch in with me, whether you are a prospective student or a Jesuan, I am always available to talk to, whether you have any questions or concerns related to Jesus, our student union or my responsibilities. Please email me via firstname.lastname@example.org.
