Demystify Oxford

Who's making it happen


The goal of this project is to improve the communications that graduate offer holders receive from the university/colleges/departments, therefore shifting the onus onto the university to provide students with the information they need to feel welcome and supported when arriving in Oxford. From talking to graduate students about their experiences starting at Oxford, I found that most, if not all, graduate students without a prior connection to the university felt that they didn’t have all of the information that they needed to be successful here. From not knowing about the childcare services the university offers to not understanding the college system and feeling ostracized by Oxford’s traditions, students felt they arrived in Oxford without a real understanding of what support was available to them or what they were getting themselves into.
