So many Colleges...
+ how do I choose the right one for me?
Every College has its own culture. Simply put, if you imagine Colleges as people, each with their own personality, some you could be life-long friends with, others would merely be acquaintances. It's important that you pick the culture that suits you best. So, how do you work out which College will fit you?
- Visit the College.
- Speak to the Students
- Read the culture of the college
It's only by doing this that you'll get a real sense of what each College values, and what Janet Clarke Hall can really do for you.
But judge for yourself. Don't trust the marketing.
So what is the JCH culture?
+ The Academic College...
Janet Clarke Hall isn't the biggest or wealthiest college. So why go with us? Our students' academic performance is incredibly high.
How do we measure this? In 2011, 40% of our students received First Class Honours. 91% of all grades were at Honours level, well above the University average.
So what's Janet Clarke Hall's culture? Who would JCH be if they were a person...
Intelligent & hard-workingThey know that University is a cornerstone of their education and the single most important factor in determining their career, life and future. They value knowledge, but wear it lightly; this person is no nerd.
Open mindedThey're open-minded and rigorously accepting of new people and ideas. They're courageous enough to speak up when they sense intolerance.
Friendly and acceptingThis person is friendly and warm. They value friendship and are not a fan of cliques, gangs or groups that exclude.
Socially mindedThey are able to see the big picture and realise that there's more to life than themselves.
Their views on religion, politics and asylum seekers...That's probably something you should ask them, but the point is...they have views. They are engaged with the world. They don't spend it in a haze of alcohol, drugs, TV watching or shopping. Ideas, discussion and debate make them come alive.
What they don't likePettiness, style-over-substance, intolerance, laziness, olives.
If this sounds like the kind of person you could imagine becoming friends with then come visit and judge for yourself. We'd be happy to give you a tour of the College anytime, or visit us on our Open Days.
