Oxford Student Higher Education Research Group (OxSHERG)

A student-led initiative, OxSHERG’s purpose is to link together research students and academic staff working on higher education topics. All University of Oxford members are welcome to join, regardless of home department or college. We share information on higher education related events (including conferences, speakers and symposia around Oxford, the UK and the world), debate ideas and discuss our own research. To join the group please email Joe Thiel.

The group (usually) meets each term on Wednesday of week 4 at 5pm. Our meetings include guest speakers, paper presentations and even formal debates! In the interests of exploring the university, we move our meetings amongst the colleges and departments. If you are interested in hosting a meeting (in your common room, college rooms, departmental rooms, etc.), please contact Joe Thiel to make arrangements. Notices of meetings are emailed to all group members.
