The Weekly Update
Our weekly newsletter is sent to the whole Department each Friday and contains updates on departmental news and events and celebrates successes and achievements. The digest is your 'go-to' source for Departmental updates and aims to replace the need for regular emails to all department members.
To help the newly-arrived wives, husbands or partners of visiting scholars, of graduate students and of newly appointed academic and administrative members of the University to settle in and to give them the opportunity to meet people in Oxford. Join the Club for coffee every Wednesday 10.30am at the University Club on Mansfield Road.
