    Ten reasons to fill in the National Student Survey

    1. It’s your chance to give your views
      The NSS is a national listening exercise – and all final year students across the UK are strongly encouraged to take part. It’s important for you, for future students, for universities, and for the broader higher education landscape of the UK. Give your views, and be part of something big.

    2. It helps us improve what we do for students
      The NSS survey – plus the Student Barometer for all students – give us the opportunity to listen and respond, and to do things better.

    Student Spotlight: My first term at Oxford

    The journey so far

    To say that I can’t quite believe that I’ve finished my first term at Oxford would be a colossal understatement - even as I type out these words and trawl through a camera roll densely populated with horrendously blurry photos that evidence what might very well have been the best eight weeks of my life so far. This last statement is not an indication of how tragic and boring I am as a person, I hope, but shows just how intensely alive and immersive Brasenose is as a community.

    In the beginning

    Volunteer with Tutor the Nation

    Spare time, commitment, and compassion

    University student volunteers are invited to apply across all subject areas, with a commitment of one hour per week, with all training provided. Tutor The Nation provides completely free tutoring to pupils from state schools, and they believe that university student volunteers can encourage aspiration and confidence in the young people they work with, with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy.

    Students supporting students: Oxford Rainbow Peers

    Introducing Rainbow Peers

    Rainbow Peers were created as a safe space for students who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community to discuss their identity, support other students and explore university and societal themes and issues. These include but are not limited to prejudice, coming out, and going home for the vacations. It is a place where intersectionality can be explored in relation to access to welfare services, peer support and listening to others.

    Student blog: The importance of continuing to keep everyone safe

    As we once again phase back to in-person teaching, there are many things to take comfort in: COVID-19 cases are trending down across the country; local hospital numbers remain steady; and an extraordinary number of people have come forward for their booster vaccine, including several hundred recently at the University Club.

    The journey so far

    We all come from different countries with Natalia coming from Malaysia, Jiazheng from China, and myself from Bosnia and Herzegovina. We met on the first year of our course and what brought us to apply for the Hackathon was thinking about how to further contextualise the knowledge we were gaining in our studies, while also challenging ourselves.
