  • I've enjoyed this video much, and have repeatedly viewed it a few times a week, and I think this is a piece of art per se. It has a humorous cover page, and it's funny that the characters there sound like children talking, but they are the elites studying at a top-notch university. This is the artistic bit of the production. It is arguably the happiest video I've come across, it seems, after viewing most of the Oxford videos introducing their various undergraduate programmes. The boy and the girl in the video here have made it sound like one could just breeze through the whole course, and their experiences of this course seem like a lot of fun in every way, not least are their blithe descriptions of their enjoyment of the tutorials. But is life really that easy there? I'd like to ask about what application criteria are expected of a mature student, who's left secondary school ages ago, but has been to university once, graduating with a BA. Does your faculty require a lot of pre-study of some art history prior to application?
