Subject Dinners

Subject Dinners are designed to bring together all students in the College in a particular discipline, from first year undergraduates to final year PhDs, together with their Directors of Studies and Supervisors, other Fellows in that field and guests, who may be formal visiting speakers or alumni. The dinners are free of charge (students can only attend the dinner relating to their subject area) and typically take place in the Michaelmas and Lent Terms. The Senior Tutor’s Office will be in touch with students with an invitation to their dinner and booking instructions. Please see the downloads section for a copy of the dates for 2023/24.
