This year’s programme of Events for Applicants was brilliantly kicked off via a live Zoom Webinar on Tuesday 24 November, with an insightful lecture by the College’s Head of Politics Nick de Souza, on the subject of ‘Is democracy about to die?’
The talk was then followed by an excellent live Zoom debate between four of the College’s Upper Sixth A Level Politics students. All attendees were given the opportunity to vote on their stance at the end of the session. And the result? 51% of participants said they believed democracy is about to die. Time will tell!
