Kellogg College and the University of Oxford

Kellogg is the University’s most international and egalitarian graduate college and has a unique mix of students: it is the University’s leading college for students reading for degrees on a part-time basis, and also has a strong and vibrant body of full-time students.

Kellogg prides itself on the expertise it has developed since its foundation to facilitate and enhance the collegiate experience of part-time students, and the College’s unique student body affords full-time students the opportunity to study in a lively University atmosphere while also benefiting from the experience of those students who, alongside their academic studies, work in various professions in a range of sectors.

Though the current global pandemic sets the College many challenges, we’ll be working harder than ever to ensure that both new and returning students continue to receive the guidance and support they need, and benefit from the unique Oxford experience.

Both online, and as we return to direct contact, we’ll be using all the resources at our disposal to make you welcome, help you achieve your goals, and stay safe. As we work to provide that learning and living space we’ll continue to be mindful of the Covid-19 risk, and learn from best practice nationally and globally, to make our College as safe as it can be.

Our in-College measures are informed by that wealth of knowledge within the University, and every decision we make is made with the safety of College members in mind. This is underpinned by our long experience in remote learning, part time study, and the particular needs of graduate students internationally and at home.

As a student at Oxford you are a member of the University and a member of Kellogg College. Every matriculated student at the University of Oxford is required to be a member of one of its colleges, although the teaching of graduate students takes place within the subject department or faculty.

For graduate students, the College functions as an administrative and social base, providing academic, wellbeing, pastoral, and social facilities and services to enable you to succeed and enjoy your time at Oxford. It also provides opportunities for intellectual exchange with academics and fellow students over a range of subject areas. This Student Handbook – in conjunction with information on both the College and University websites – should help you to appreciate your role and responsibilities within each part of the University as well as the support you can expect in return.

Please note that every effort has been made to ensure that this Student Handbook is correct at the time of writing. Changes detailed in the Student Handbook apply each year to all students so if you are studying for longer than a year, please familiarise yourself with the latest version of the Student Handbook. Students will be advised of any significant changes or amendments that occur during the year. The College collects and uses information about you in accordance with the principles set out in the University’s student fair processing notice at www.ox.ac.uk/students/life/it/studentrecord/data. This includes ensuring that your data will only be used in a way which is fair, lawful and secure. By signing and returning the College contract you agree to such use by the College of individual personal data.
