TAP in the wild: Somerville College, University of Oxford

We’re really happy to announce that Somerville College is now the third Oxford college to start using our platform to power its peer outreach work.

Somerville’s team of Student Ambassadors are already creating content, answering FAQs and having great conversations with prospective students - check out their TAP Page now.

Founded in 1879 as Somerville Hall, it was one of the first two women's colleges in Oxford, and it counts Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, and Iris Murdoch among its alumnae. Today, around half of the students are male.

We recently trained their team of eight Student Ambassadors and had a blast - here they are!


Somerville joins the Queen’s College and Magdalen College in using The Access Platform for its peer outreach efforts. In fact, we recently caught up with Magdalen College to get their thoughts on the value of working with Student Ambassadors for their outreach work - read our interview with them.
