29 new Scholars join us today from 21 different countries across the world. We are delighted to welcome, for the first time, Scholars from Guatemala, Laos, Ecuador and Venezuela. They are coming together for the first element of the Scholarships and Leadership Programme: the Moral Philosophy Seminar. This intensive four-day programme of discussions on political and moral philosophy features key texts from Confucius, Mahatma Gandhi, Kate Millett and Adam Smith amongst others.
As well as an academic grounding Scholars will get a chance to meet each other, familiarise themselves with Oxford and take part in various social activities. We’ll be updating our social media accounts to keep everyone up to date with the events of the weekend – don’t forget to check back with us to find out how it went.
