Freshers’ week 2020

The week beginning Sunday 4th October is freshers’ week. More detailed information about the Freshers’ week schedule will be release closer to the start of term. As you can imagine, this year Freshers’ week is going to look a little different to normal. A huge amount of work is being done by the JCR (Junior Common Room) to ensure that you have the most enjoyable and welcoming experience possible whilst remaining safe.


Matriculation on Saturday 17th October 2020

Matriculation is the process by which you officially become a member of the University of Oxford. The University has this year taken the difficult decision that Matriculation ceremonies cannot happen in person. Virtual events are being planned and you will receive more information in Freshers’ Week.
