Newsletter

  • The Graduate College Newsletter is the newsletter of the research student community at Oxford Brookes University.  There are three editions published throughout the academic year; in January, May and September. Our September edition includes details of conferments during the previous academic year, as well as upcoming training and networking events for the new academic year.

    We welcome involvement from our research students, in the form of individual success stories, nominations or awards, grants or funding achievements, as well as research profiles and 'Year in the Life of...' narratives.  So if you are interested in contributing to a future edition, please do get in touch.
