Panel discussion led by Vice Chancellor Andrew Hamilton, with Mike Nicholson, Helen Swift, Priscilla Santos and Jenny Brennan.
Each year, Oxford welcomes talented students, at both undergraduate and graduate level, from all over the globe. Our students come from 140 different countries and territories, attracted by the chance to study at an internationally-renowned university, with outstanding academic achievement and innovation. This session, chaired by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Andrew Hamilton, will take a closer look at the student experience at Oxford. Topics under discussion will include Oxford's distinctive college and tutorial system which still underpins a culture of close academic supervision; recent changes to student fees and funding; the admissions process, and Oxford's extensive work in access and widening participation, helping to ensure that the best students, regardless of background, apply to the University. Current students will also be represented on the panel to share some of their experiences.
