The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a great period of change and this has forced us to reassess our priorities within the Alumni Office. The way in which we engage with our alumni is now very different and we as a University must adapt to ensure that we continue to provide the resources and opportunities that support our growing alumni community. Unfortunately, after much deliberation, it was felt that the travel programme could no longer be maintained.

It is unlikely that we will restart the travel programme within the next few years. The travel industry is currently in a state of transformation, not only from the effects of the pandemic but also due to growing concerns about environmental issues and wider ethical discussions about the impact of tourism. We will continue to keep up to date with specialist travel programmes for consideration in the future.

Yes. The Armchair Travel events have been massively popular, and we will continue to offer these as part of our ongoing online events series. If you would like to receive updates about these events, please join the mailing list.

During 2022 you will receive the regular travel updates including upcoming tours and Armchair Travel digital events. After 2022 you will continue to receive Alumni Office e-newsletters featuring the latest news from the University, alumni stories, events notifications, and more.

Please email travel@alumni.ox.ac.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
