We’re looking forward to welcoming our 2018/19 cohort and making last minute preparations for the Moral Philosophy Seminar being held in Harris Manchester College soon. It’s always such a wonderful time meeting new Scholars and helping them to gather their bearings and explore Oxford. Not long to go now!

2018 Cohort Raise Funds for Leadership and Alumni Programme
The 2018 cohort took it upon themselves to start a new fundraising campaign for the alumni programme. This was announced at the Leadership Forum dinner and they were pleased to know that within a few days the first target was far exceeded.
We are once again delighted that our outgoing Scholars have put together a cookbook celebrating their year at Oxford with their favourite recipes. Special thanks goes to Saadia Gardezi and Scherezade Tarar who designed and coordinated the endeavour to create a lasting momento of the year. We’ve already received some great feedback and are looking forward to trying out a few more dishes. You can download a copy here to start your culinary trials.
