A wide range of events is provided each term, ranging from stimulating academic symposia to forward-looking careers-oriented sessions to relaxed cultural outings.

Clarendon is so much more than generous financial support – it is intellectually stimulating discussions with inspiring young scholars, memorable weekly outings that create mutual bonds and lifelong friends, and unique professional opportunities tailored to its members.

Recently, Clarendon scholars have enjoyed lectures from Professor Ros Rickaby, Conrad Wolfram, Baroness Susan Greenfield, Sir Paul Collier CBE and Professor Cameron Hepburn; they have run research round-tables and 'lightning talks' showcasing ideas in their diverse fields; they have been to classical concerts, opera and ballet in London and Oxford; they have visited places of historic interest such as Stratford-upon-Avon and the beautiful Blenheim Palace; they have strengthened mind and body by participating in charity bike rides, ice skating, rock climbing and football; they have attended formal dinners in historic settings across Oxford and some not so formal dinners; and they have of course spent plenty of time putting the world to rights over coffee or something stronger in Oxford's common rooms, cafés and pubs.
