Freshers' events 2019

While the prospect of studying at Oxford can be exciting, it can also be a daunting one for many...

Several alumni groups host freshers' events to help offer-holders prepare for life at Oxford and welcome them as they embark on their educational journey at the University.

The events provide the opportunity to meet fellow students heading to Oxford and also find out about life and study at the University from current students and alumni.

Please see below for the latest details of freshers' events taking place this year.

If your alumni group is holding such an event, please submit your event details via the online form here.

Alternatively, please email the Networks Team with the event details.
