1. Key information for new undergraduates
New undergraduates are required to complete the Undergraduate Information Form below, giving their personal and emergency contact details, a recent picture, and confirming that they have read and understood the Student Handbook (on the left of this page). New students must also ensure they complete their medical registration with Summertown Health Centre.
The University’s Examination Regulations are published and kept up to date online. In addition to information about the general conduct of exams at Oxford, the website lists the regulations covering each of the University’s degrees; it is important for students to be familiar with the rules covering their course, and students should consult the Regulations at least once a year to ensure that changes do not go unnoticed. As the website provides an archive, it is imperative that students take care to find the appropriate year’s regulations.
When you received your University Offer you were provided with a link to the Student Handbook. This document is updated annually and the updated version for 2019-20 can be found here. It is important to look through the Handbook and familiarise yourself with its contents.
Please refer to the FAQ section at the bottom of this page, and direct any other queries to the College Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01865 274929.
