Our Alumni Relations team have recently been increasing the amount of events we run. We've run some very successful class reunions, which involve spending the weekend in Oxford meeting with current researchers, visiting some of our research locations, and most importantly, catching up with friends. We also held a special alumni event in 2018 at the Reform Club in London which was attended by more than 80 alumni and was a huge success, and we are keen to run similar activities in the future.

Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has meant we haven’t been able to plan as many alumni events as we would have liked, but we are hoping to plan more events for our alumni in the near future.

If you have an idea for an alumni event or you would like us to help you organise a reunion with your old class, then please contact the Communications & Engagement Officer at

Additionally, we run several public seminar events throughout the year. For info about upcoming seminars, keep an eye on our events page, and find past events on our YouTube page.

Get Involved

Our Communications and Engagement Officer is working on establishing several schemes involving our alumni to support both current students as well as prospective students. Over the coming months we'll be launching a mentoring scheme linking up existing students with alumni, in order to offer career guidance as well as general support. 

The other main focus is on outreach. In 2020, we commissioned Dr Tanesha Allen to write a report identifying ways to improve access and equity in Biology, and many of Monica's plans actively link into actions proposed from this report. We'll share more information about this shortly, and you can read more about Dr Allen's report here


The future of Biology at Oxford is supported by generous donations, especially from our alum.
