OXFORD UNIVERSITY CANADIAN STUDENTS SOCIETY
CANADIANS AT OXFORD
The University of Oxford has a long and fruitful relationship with Canada. Since Confederation, some of the most well-known Canadians have studied at this institution, including two Prime Ministers: John Turner and Nobel Prize Laureate Lester B. Pearson. In addition, numerous Canadians have held academic posts here and left their mark, such as William Osler, Northrop Frye, and Margaret McMillan.
Today, Canadian students are the University’s fifth largest group of international students and since 2015, OUCSS has worked to build a sense of Canadian community here at Oxford. While 2020 may look a bit different than other years, the society is aiming to continue to grow the Canadian spirit here at Oxford with events in line with current COVID-19 restrictions.
