Dr Helen Salisbury told the coroner: “He was very anxious relating to academic work and a sporting event."
Professor Stephen Faulkner, the Dean at Keble College in Oxford said he had "very positive reports" and the student as "actively involved in the university golf club".
But on April 6 this year, the court heard how he was hit by a train.
Cops went to his flat and found letters suggesting he was going to commit suicide.
Assistant coroner Nicholas Graham recorded a verdict of suicide.
