Even before you arrive you’ll have a chance to connect with other students – to make friends, meet your new course mates, find your new flatmates, share interests and experiences as well as support each other.
Whatever your age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability or religion we're looking forward to welcoming you to our inclusive, vibrant and diverse Christ Church community.
You'll be invited to join a closed Facebook group just for new students starting in your year.
This is a great place to meet others, share tips and keep up-to-date with the latest news opportunities and events.
Whether you’re a school leaver or a postgraduate, a mature student or parent, a commuter or an international student - with the Facebook group you’re never alone, with plenty of others in the same situation willing to share their advice and offer support.
There’s nothing like asking a current undergraduate or postgraduate student, who has already experienced what it’s like to start at Christ Church, to make you feel reassured and comfortable about coming to uni.
You can ask to have a peer mentor to inform and guide you before you arrive. They can also support you through your first few months and beyond, providing a friendly face for you once you arrive.
Don’t miss out on your programme welcome when you start. As well as a chance to learn more about your programme this is when you'll meet your new course mates.
If you’re studying a postgraduate programme, you’ll become part of our Graduate College. In this supportive academic environment, you can get to know other postgraduates and get involved in cross-disciplinary discussions. We also have a Postgraduate Research Association where our research students can connect with each other, share learning and exchange views.
The Students’ Union is here to empower, encourage and help give you the best student experience at university. Run for students, by students, you automatically become a member for free once you start and there’s lots of ways you can get involved.
The Students’ Union put on a wide range of events in person and online to suit all interests, and have a range of clubs and societies - so there is literally something for everyone, to help people talk to each other, have fun and, most importantly, make friends.
What better way to learn about uni life than to ask a peer mentor, a current student who can give you the benefit of their first-hand experience and help welcome you into our Christ Church community.
Follow your passion, share your interest, broaden your horizons or discover something new – it’s all possible at Christ Church, with so many opportunities to get involved beyond your degree.
