Oxford University Careers Fairs

  • Connecting students with disabilities/health conditions with recruiters at Oxford University Careers Fairs

The Careers Service is running a number of bespoke sessions for students with disabilities or health conditions titled ‘Engaging with organisations as a Disabled Student’ before most of their sector Careers Fairs running in Michaelmas Term. These sessions are for any student who identifies themselves as having a disability, specific learning difficulty, or any mental or physical health condition, which they feel may impact on how recruiters or educational providers view them. At these sessions you’ll learn how to assess how disability-friendly an organisation is, how your circumstances may affect working with them, and how sharing (or not sharing) your circumstances may affect the recruitment process.
There will be lots of opportunity for you to ask questions in this confidential setting. It may be of particular interest to you if you have had to ‘suspend their studies’ at some point, owing to health reasons, and want to know how your application may be viewed. It is open to all students whatever year of study.
If you attend this workshop you’ll also be able to access the fairs before the official start time and meet with recruiters before it gets busy. Recruiters attending the fairs are aware that there will be some students keen to talk with them about their circumstances prior to the start of the fair away from the crowds.
Booking is essential. If you would like to reserve a place please login to CareerConnect and view Events or contact Careers Service Reception for more information on reception@careers.ox.ac.uk or 01865 274646.
These sessions are being held at:

  • Internship Fair 31/10/18 @ 13:30 in Oxford Town Hall
  • Law Fair 3/11/18 @ 10:00 in Exam Schools, Oxford

  • "PHYSICS AND THE DARK SIDE" ONE-DAY CONFERENCE

This event will be a one-day conference on Saturday 24th November 2018 on Physics and the Dark Side. Across the millennia darkness occurring due to physical phenomena such as solar and lunar eclipses has been a source of fascination and awe, and as astronomical knowledge developed it was discovered that there was a dark side of the Moon never visible to the Earth. With a deepening understanding of the field of cosmology, black holes were first predicted and then experimentally discovered. More recently theories of both dark matter and dark energy have been postulated to explain effects observed in the Universe caused by the presence of such unseen matter and the Universe's expansion. This conference will examine these different strands of the dark side of physics across the ages.

Registration and attendance at the conference are FREE.

Details of the conference and how to register are at:

  • The Quant Conference

The rise of big data, application of machine learning and other technological developments in recent years have transformed the quantitative finance industry, and The Quant Conference has been conceived as an event to provide an educational forum for delegates to hear about current trends in the cutting-edge field of quantitative finance and the latest research in the trending world of cryptocurrencies. The Quant Conference’s speaker roster of industry leaders and academics provides insights from those pioneering these changes. Furthermore, with a support of our sponsors J.P Morgan and Aspect Capital, The Quant Conference is generously priced to ensure that both students and industry professionals from a wide range of companies can make the most of this opportunity. The event will be held on the 2nd of November Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, London.

The Quant Conference also provides industry professionals who work in talent acquisition and recruitment at an investment bank or a hedge fund with the opportunity to meet more than 200 pre-vetted students from across the UK and Europe who have an interest in a career in quantitative finance.

Access and Diversity

  • Access and Diversity event with the Vice Chancellor - 6 November

Access and diversity are issues that affect all of us at the University. Following on from the publication of an open letter on the subject in the Guardian last term, which was signed by over 1,100 students, the Vice Chancellor has agreed to take part in an open forum to hear the thoughts and suggestions of current students at the University, and discuss how to move forward.

This forum will be held on Tuesday November 6 between 1pm and 2pm at the Oxford Martin School and all current students are invited to attend and share their thoughts and ideas about how to make Oxford a fairer and more inclusive place. We expect this discussion to be both constructive and respectful.

The venue will be fully accessible, and students who cannot attend are welcome to submit ideas or questions in writing to benjamin.fernando@seh.ox.ac.uk. This event is entirely student-organised, and has been rescheduled from 31 October.
