    Create a study plan

    A study plan is a great way to help motivate you to study. How you choose to create one is up to you. You might want to add calendar reminders to your phone or even use a wall planner. More information on how to create a study plan can be found on the Oxford Students website. There is also a short video on the website about how to manage your time.

  • Oxford African & Caribbean Society

    Society Spotlight: African and Caribbean Society

    Before coming to Oxford last year, I was aware that the University has a very small number of ethnic minority students. My parents asked me if I was concerned about this and I said no. The reality is, this is no more keenly felt than in the African and Caribbean demographic of the University and the statistics to show this are countless.
