Saffiyah Keig-Momin gave a fascinating and illuminating talk on ‘Why study music at Oxford?’ last week here at AGGS. Saffiyah was a student at AGGS from 2007-2014 and an active musician and performer throughout her time at school, directing many of the ensembles and leading 1st Orchestra and String Orchestra as violinist.
Her talk helped explain the process of application, how to choose a college (there are 32 at Oxford!), what to expect at the interview, and what life is like as music student there.
Saffiyah is currently a 3rd year student at Somerville College, Oxford and is hoping to continue postgraduate studies in music at either Oxford or Manchester, with a view to becoming a university lecturer.
