PG Information

Information for New Postgraduates

We are delighted to welcome you to Brasenose College and the University of Oxford, and look forward to meeting you soon!

We hope that you will enjoy your time here and that you will make the most of what the College has to offer – both academically, and in terms of the diverse social and extracurricular opportunities available. Please take a look at the webpages below to find out what you need to do next, and for useful information and guidance.

We know that the effects of the coronavirus pandemic will inevitably affect the experience that you have as a new student at Brasenose and mean that you don’t get the typical Freshers’ Week, but we will do our best to help you settle in to your studies and to college life. Some of the information on this website is likely to change as we get closer to the start of term, and some plans are still being finalised, but we will keep you updated as we make changes.

The nature of the coronavirus pandemic, especially changes in public health guidelines and government policy both in the UK and elsewhere, means that some plans for the start of year are still being finalised. We will update you and amend these pages as soon as things are clarified, but we hope that the information below is a useful starting point.
