Global Female Leadership Conference – Oxford, 22 May

Posted on behalf of The Oxford Guild Society. Blogged by Polly Metcalfe on 16/05/2019.

The Global Female Leadership Conference is the UK’s largest university-led conference of its kind, giving you access to the most inspiring, high profile industry pioneers and most innovative changemakers leading the way, the hottest debates and discussions and the brightest ideas.

Join the Oxford Guild Society on Wednesday 22 May at Oxford University’s Said Business School from 14:00 onwards, to hear from, connect with and meet the most prominent people and companies who are pushing for a fairer world, learn about the latest trends and most exciting innovations, listen to the most topical debates, connect with like-minded talented individuals and gain inspiration. The incredible line up of inspiring speakers includes the leading figures from the philanthropic, business, financial, legal, fashion, technological, political, literature, film, music, media, sports, investment, sustainability, environmental, non profit and entrepreneurship worlds.

This is a very special event, and the first of its kind. Rarely will you ever get the chance to meet with so many inspirational leaders and to hear their motivating stories. We want to empower all genders and start the conversation on what we feel is a very important topic. As such we welcome people from all genders, backgrounds and year groups and encourage everyone to attend (you do not have to stay for the whole time and can leave/re-enter as you wish).

Tickets are on sale now at a huge 50% discount (less than £4!) with special code: VIPTICKET19. Secure your place here.

Add the event to your Facebook calendar here.

Considering postgraduate study in Europe? Come along and find out more!

Blogged by Karen Walker on 16/05/2019.

Perfectly timed to coincide with EU election day!

When: Thursday 23 May, 13:00-14:00
Where: The Careers Service
Add this event to your Facebook calendar.

Increasing numbers of students are considering masters degrees and other higher degrees at European universities outside of the UK. The increase in the number of courses taught in English and the often lower fee levels can make it an attractive option.

In the Postgraduate Study in Europe session we will explore the possibility of study in European countries with a particular focus on Germany, France and the Netherlands (the most common destinations for Oxford graduates). We will highlight key differences, application processes and timelines, and signpost key resources. We don’t have the answers to your Brexit questions, but we can help with the practicalities as they stand at the moment.
