Information for Incoming Postgraduate Students 2020/21

Welcome to St Anne’s! We hope you are looking forward to joining us this coming Michaelmas term. Here is some information you may find useful to prepare for your first few weeks in Oxford:

Fresher’s Week Timetable 2020

You will find below a provisional Fresher’s Week timetable we have prepared for you – please note that due to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation in the UK, this timetable is still subject to change. Please check your emails and our Facebook group for the latest updates.


MCR Handbook

Our postgraduate handbook provides you with all the information you need to get started! It brings together years of knowledge and the hard work of a few people, including three MCR Presidents! Please let us know if we’ve missed anything by emailing the president.


The Middle Common Room

Welcome to our family

The MCR is your second family in Oxford; we take care of your welfare, organize a wide variety of socials and academic events, and meet multiple times a term to discuss college life at our MCR General meetings. Our common room is located in Eleanor Plumer House – visit our dedicated webpage to learn more.


Find your College parents

Every year, we set up a mentorship scheme that connects you with other St Anne’s postgrads who are in your programme or studying a similar subject. They become your “college parents” and are a great source of information to get you started in Oxford. Please check your email near the start of term for more information.
