Connecting with other researchers

Making connections with other researchers, whether professionally or socially, is an invaluable opportunity while at Oxford; but it may not be easy if you're working on your own, or just within your group, focusing on your specific area of research. The University offers a range of mechanisms to help you make these connections both within and outside your department.

Researcher-specific networks
