Three Columba Old Girls head to Oxbridge

Julia Matheson, Emma Hutton and Yani Hung left New Zealand to begin their studies at Oxford and Cambridge Universities. Julia Matheson won a 2008 Rhodes Scholarship to study for a doctor of philosophy degree in medical oncology at Balliol College, Oxford University. Emma Hutton won the 2008 Girdlers’ Scholarship, regarded as the undergraduate equivalent of the Rhodes Scholarship, which took her to Corpus Christi College, Cambridge University, to study music. Yani Hung was short-listed for a undergraduate place at Oxford University and was successful at interview, and went on to study medicine at Pembroke College.
