    Shape the future of digital education at Oxford

    The University is updating its Digital Education Strategy in light of rapid changes in the student learning experience.

    The current Digital Education Strategy was endorsed in 2016 and we have since made extraordinary progress in our online teaching and learning offering - dramatically accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Re-entering a social world

    Taking the first steps 

    As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease, you may feel anxious or ambivalent about re-engaging with a social world. If so, you are not alone. In some cases, this may result from continued anxiety about the pandemic: it may be hard to trust that socialising is safe. Or you may worry you won’t have the confidence and social skills to navigate in a social world.

    "I feel I have had a great transition to university this year – from the Opportunity Oxford programme which equipped me with the core skills to succeed in my degree to the college and faculty study skills sessions and the specific feedback provided by tutors, I have really been able to develop academically."

    The pandemic: a big blow for music

    "OUMS is one of the largest student societies in Oxford, with nine ensembles and hundreds of members. With live music-making the bulk of our activity, a pandemic that thrives on human contact and aerosol transmission was always going to pose a challenge. Along with most things, then, music has taken a back seat to students’ experiences of Oxford this year. Concerts have gone unperformed, varsity trips to Cambridge untaken, competitions such as UniBrass unwon, and instruments unplayed.

    Studying for an Oxford MBA

    Ink is an AfOx Graduate Scholar with a Bachelor of Arts in Modern Culture and Media and before coming to Oxford, had never studied finance. Her intention to expand her business in the global market is what led Ink to apply for the Oxford MBA programme:

    “Many people believe business school is a place for bankers and financial analysts. But it is also a place for unconventional people like me who want to learn how to expand our business ventures.”
