We provide supplementary educational opportunities for matriculated members of the University of Oxford community, including lectures, guest speakers, policy and research delegations focused on contemporary issues in international relations and national security.

From Michaelmas to Trinity term, we host a variety of public seminars, lectures, and talks with leading international speakers for the benefit of the University of Oxford academic community. Events are open to all matriculated members (current and former students, as well as faculty) of the University of Oxford. Registration is required in advance, but events are generally free to attend. We are partnered with a variety of student societies in order to ensure maximum exposure. We also offer a selection of smaller, invitation-only events, such as dinners with prestigious speakers, and weekend-long policy workshops in London, Cambridge, and the Cotswolds. Finally, we offer policy and research delegation opportunities for a highly-selective group of up-and-coming student campus leaders during term-time vacations.
