Student Handbook

Please read this Student Handbook carefully. It contains information on a variety of important subjects and sets out the detailed regulations governing your relationship with the College.

A glossary of Oxford terms can be found at:; you might find it useful if you want to know what ‘Torpids’ are or need an explanation for the word ‘Encaenia’.
