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.

Beyond the Picture: Calligraphy and the Arts of the Book in Sultanate India
Friday 20 September - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

A lecture by Eloïse Brac de la Perrière. Numerous fields of investigation await the attention of specialists of Sultanate India. In particular, the study of illustrated manuscripts offers many perspectives: the iconography, the text, and the book itself, including its materials and their assemblage. The calligraphy from this period has scarcely been studied, despite its marked peculiarities. Calligraphy also provides a bridge between the artistic, intellectual and spiritual fields.
