Pembroke is a warm, inclusive and welcoming community, conveniently located in a peaceful setting in the centre of Oxford, and graduates play a significant role in the College's activities. With over 100 graduate students from all over the world pursuing study in a wide range of disciplines, there is plenty to get involved in at Pembroke both academically and socially.
All graduates are allocated a College advisor from among the College Fellows; graduates are encourages to have regular meetings with their advisor, and Pembroke's tutors take a strong interest in graduates' academic achievements and personal development.
New in the 2012/13 academic year, a significant extension to the main college site will complete and enhance the College's facilities for both students and staff. With a state-of-the-art lecture theatre, seminar rooms, café, art gallery and a bridge linking the new quad to the College's Chapel quad, Pembroke's new spaces will interlink with the old to strengthen and encourage interaction between its undergraduate, graduate and teaching communities.
