What is Oxford Global’s status or affiliation to the university?
Oxford Global is a social enterprise that works in collaboration with the university on several projects, mostly relating to education and access. All of our staff members are university affiliates, but the organisation has no official ties to the university. Most importantly, the university is not responsible for the content or delivery of the summit.
Can I put ‘University of Oxford’ on my CV if I attend one of Oxford Global’s events?
No. Oxford Global has no official ties to the university.
If one of the professors or mentors i work with is impressed with my participation in the summit, Can I ask them for a letter of recommendation?
The top 10% of participants will automatically receive recommendation letters from a member of Oxford Global. You will be notified after the summit if you fall in this category.
Aside from this, we kindly ask that you do not approach the mentors with such requests during the summit, unless they themselves offer to keep in touch.
