What do you love most about Oliverian?
“At Oliverian, students are able to explore different opportunities, that then develop into interests. Oliverian doesn’t judge, it accepts and embraces differences, and hopefully can bring out the best in its students. Having worked at Oliverian for five years, I got to know the students well, in and outside the classroom environment, and I feel very lucky to have built relationships with such extraordinary individuals.”
