International Mother Language Day

In recognition of International Mother Language Day 2019, Wolfson College has put together a video featuring students talking in their mother language. From Bengali to Hungarian, British Sign Language to Dutch, ten different languages are highlighted in this video. Wolfson College's graduate students represent over seventy-five countries, making it one of the most internationally diverse colleges in Oxford.

International graduates at Oxford

Around two thirds of our graduate students are international. Our prospective graduates often have questions for us about what it's like to come to Oxford and live in the UK, so the University Graduate Office has put together some answers.

The conference sets an exclusive focus on modelling the costs of construction over the course of 1,500 years, from Archaic Greece to the early middle ages.
