Socialise and Celebrate

Our broad range of social events is the best way to make new friends and experience German culture at Oxford.

Dance away to cheerful Bavarian folk songs at the “Oxtoberfest”, smell authentic German bread at our “Abendbrot”, or meet like-minded people over a cup of good old coffee at our traditional “Kaffee und Kuchen.”

To find out more about this term’s socials take a look at our Termcard. But be warned, by attending our events you risk an overdose of free cake and fantastic friendships!

Challenge Our Speakers

What do Olaf Scholz, Carolin Kebekus, and Timur Vermes have in common? We have had the honour of welcoming all three of them to Oxford!

These speaker events are your unique opportunity to not only learn from brilliant minds, but also to challenge them by firing away your questions and raising lively discussions – share your opinions with our speakers!

Each term, we invite celebrities from various fields to join us for talks and interviews. Throughout the last few years, we have had quite a few prominent guests, all of whom you can find in our Hall of Fame.
