Hertford College, Oxford: Unsung Heroes of Science Competition

Hughs MCR: Stipendiary Lectureship in Applied Mathematics Hertford ...

Video competition

Who has history forgotten? Whose story has been left out of the textbooks? Whose work gets overlooked? Whose story do you want to share?

UPDATE: The 2020 competition is now open to individuals as well as teams of two or three and anyone aged 16-18 anywhere in the world. We want you to make a short video celebrating a scientist who deserves wider recognition. There are no restrictions on who you can choose to celebrate – they can be alive or dead and from anywhere you want. Show us who inspires you in the world of science and help us to learn more about them.

The challenge

Working alone – or in a team of two or three – we challenge you to create two videos, each of which is around two minutes long. In the first ‘Hero’ video we want to hear about the unsung hero of science that you’ve chosen to celebrate. Tell us a story about what you find interesting, whether that’s their life, their discoveries or even their mistakes. Your target audience for this video is 12-year-olds so you should tell the story of your hero in an engaging, accessible and clear way.

In the second ‘Team’ video we want to meet you (and your team if there’s one than one of you entering), so tell us about who you are and why you chose your unsung hero. We’d like you to answer the following questions in this video:

  1. Who is your unsung hero of science?
  2. Why did you choose this unsung hero?
  3. Why do you think they are not well known?
  4. Why do you think they should be better known?
  5. What’s your favourite fact you learned while making this video?

The deadline

All competition entries must be submitted by Friday 24th April 2020. The celebration day for shortlisted teams will take place on Tuesday 30th June 2020.*

*The date and format of the celebration day will be kept under review given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

All details can be found here.

UBC: Choosing a Major Advice

Image result for ubc logo

Whether or not you’re declaring your major this year, it’s smart to think ahead!

We connected with 9 students for their tips and stories on choosing their majors. This way, you can have a clearer idea of what you’d like to pursue (and some reassurance if you’re feeling unsure and still deciding).

Students from Applied Science, Arts, Business, Forestry, Kinesiology, Land and Food Systems, Music and Science spoke about their process of declaring their major.

You can read their stories here.

Hult Study Promise 2020

In these tough and uncertain times, we want you to know that we’re here to help with any concerns you’re facing with your education. We specialize in challenges and disruption at Hult and you should know that no matter your situation—we’re here for you.

But actions speak louder than words, so we’ve created the Hult Study Promise. It’s a promise that ensures you will be able to start your Bachelor of Business Administration at Hult this fall—because we believe nothing should get in the way of your education and the opportunity to secure the best possible future for yourself.

What you should know about the Hult Study Promise:

Refundable confirmation deposit

To help ease some of your worries, effective immediately (March 20, 2020) until further notice we are making our confirmation deposit refundable. This means that if you confirm your place at Hult and cancel, for any reason, we’ll refund your money.

Adapting admissions criteria

We continue to be a selective academic program and for Fall 2020 admissions we have high expectations of the caliber of our incoming students. However, we know that many students around the world cannot provide documentation at this time because of the impact of COVID-19. As such, Hult will continue our online interviews for all candidates but the Hult Admissions Committee is now accepting a personal statement with evidence of past academic performance and can provide alternate online English proficiency tests for affected regions.

Virtual classrooms

To provide an option for students who still may not be able to make it to one of our campuses, we’ll provide a top-notch education experience virtually. This isn’t a conference call with 700 other students or a pre-recorded webinar. Our class sizes remain interactive and agile, professors engage on a personal level and you are still connecting with other students through break-out sessions and group work.
