Student engagement

The collegiate University continually works to ensure that you receive the best student experience during your time here. By giving your feedback you can help identify strengths and weaknesses at Oxford University, while influencing future improvements.

Tea with the Vice-Chancellor

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Louise Richardson, holds a series of afternoon teas to enable her to meet with a range of student members from the colleges. The teas take place throughout the academic year. They are organised by undergraduate, graduate taught and graduate research groupings, with colleges nominating students to attend.  

Vice-Chancellor's open office hours 

The Vice-Chancellor is holding open office hours four times a term. University student members are welcome to request a 15-minute appointment to raise any topic. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and the meetings take place in the Vice-Chancellor's office. For upcoming dates and appointment requests, please visit the Vice-Chancellor's Open Office page. 

Student surveys

The University runs a number of surveys throughout the academic year which include university-wide surveys, surveys within your college, your department or about your course or a specific service provided to you. We work closely with Oxford SU to design and run such surveys and analyse the results. Your feedback is always important to help evaluate and improve the student experience for current and future students.

  • Student Barometer
