The Oxford collegiate system enables leading academics and students across subjects and year groups, and from different cultures and countries, to come together to share ideas. Belonging to an Oxford college provides students with the chance to participate in a lively intellectual community and access a variety of social activities.
College social events include dinners, banquets and balls. Students have access to their college grounds, libraries, computer rooms and in some cases punts and bars. All colleges have a variety of sports clubs and societies and students can contribute to decision-making of the college by becoming a member of various committees.
"Learning at Oxford, surrounded and taught by world-leading epidemiologists and global health scientists, has been transformative, driving me to think critically and innovatively about population health issues. With this enriched experience, I'm eager to apply my skills to impactful, grassroots, and large-scale health research, aiming to improve the quality and quantity of lives of people in Africa and globally."
