In 2019, TV One UK hosted members of the BanglaSoc committee and society on their talk show, Pathways. Sheamol Obeda, Zaynab Ahmed, Azmaeen Zarif and Tahmida Huq all discussed issues that ranged from applying to Cambridge, personal statements, interviews, life at the university and the postgraduate experience. We had ATN Bangla UK discuss everything CU BanglaSoc related too.
With a viewership of 500,000 plus, we were able to discuss real issues facing the Bangladeshi community when it came to access to Oxbridge and were able to broaden our reach.
Sheamol Obeda, one of the Bsoc panelists said “it was really important for us to be on TV One and ATN Bangla as it allows other Bangladeshi’s around the country to see what they are able to achieve, to show them what life at Cambridge is really like, and to inspire them to apply to Cambridge!”
