A central mission of the Oxford Black Alumni Network is to use our insights and experiences to inspire, motivate and equip the next generation of students.


We know that many negative perceptions persist about accessing and studying at the University of Oxford and other elite higher education institutions. We are also conscious of, and determined to work against, the disadvantages that hold many back, and stop others dreaming. 


Through our alumni network, we hope to inform young people of the opportunities and challenges associated with university life and university applications so that they are able to approach their futures with confidence.
