Postgraduate study at Oxford University is immensely rewarding. Most postgraduates count it a privilege to have lived and worked here and take away fond memories they will retain all their lives. But postgraduate study at Oxford can also be extremely challenging. Most students experience feelings of frustration, inadequacy and isolation at some point in their course or research.
The Oxford Pastorate chaplains are available to accompany postgraduates of all faiths and none through these highs and lows of postgraduate life.
We believe that building and participating in strong friendships and a lively community is essential to making the most of your time at Oxford. We partner with chapels, societies and, particularly, churches who are able to offer fun, caring community to postgraduates. These are Christian groups but would welcome postgraduates of any or no religious faith.
The University is also blessed with an abundance of beautiful chapels and friendly chaplains who are delighted to receive and involve postgraduate students in their worship and other activities. For a full list of religious provision within the university visit the Chaplaincy page here.
The Oxford Pastorate is committed to creating a safe and caring space for all; you can read our safeguarding policy here.
