OUS South West France - Boat Race Event 2016

Once again, thanks to Jeremy James, 13 members and partners were able to meet the Boat Race crew during their annual training period at Le Temple-sur-Lot at the beginning of January.

This was the third year for this event and the day went, as always, extremely well. Jeremy started the event because he knew that OUBC trained on the Lot (one of the main rivers of southwestern France) every January and thought that it might be fun for both sides.

Travel and learn in 2016

Oxford Alumni Travellers offers worldwide small-group alumni journeys accompanied by an academic trip scholar. From history to zoology, our insightful journeys cover a wide range of themes.

What makes our travel programme and tours different from others? It's you! Those who have the University of Oxford in common with one another are interesting, interested people. When you get together on one of our Oxford Travellers journeys, you meet old friends and make new ones, discover new cultures, and have adventures packed with memories to last a lifetime.

The addition of an expert trip scholars enhances this Oxford connection and for many travellers, this is the highlight of the trip. A traveller on a the recent Hellespont: Gateway of Legends tour in September 2015 said that their trip scholar 'was outstandingly good and well-nigh worth the whole cost of the tour on his own. As one would expect, his lectures were a model of how to communicate with an intelligent but lay audience.’

New trips for 2016 include:

  • The Mysteries of Persia
  • Chile: Astronomy Capital of the World
  • Images of Papua New Guinea

If you haven't yet been on one of our trips, give it a try - we think you will enjoy connecting with Oxford alumni, families, and friends.
