Happy 1st Birthday, Oxford Foundry

A look back at a packed first year

And what a year it's been! Since we opened our doors last October, we have seen our student community reach over 2300 members. These are drawn from all four divisions of the University, from 38 colleges and 6 private halls, with a 50/50 split in undergrads and postgrads, and covering 87 different nationalities, making the Foundry a truly diverse and inclusive centre for ALL of Oxford's 24,000 students.

We've launched our accelerator, rolled out our learning programme, established a Student Advisory Board, and in the spirit of One Oxford, we've reached across departmental boundaries and geographical distances, to encourage cross-pollination of ideas among scientists and classicists, historians and engineers.

We've done a lot more besides - you can read all about it here! But rest assured, we have a lot of exciting stuff planned for the year ahead, so keep watching...
