All first-year Undergraduate, Graduate and Visiting Students come up to Oxford the week before their course begins and take part in an induction programme (also known as Freshers’ Week), which provides a wide range of information and guidance about life and study at New College and Oxford. Our students have also prepared a number of events to inform you and entertain you during this time. 

Freshers will be notified by email when their JCR, MCR and subject-related timetables are ready.  

The Michaelmas Term Freshers' Week will run from Sunday 1 October 2023 for Graduate, Maximilaneum, Princeton and Erasmus students and from Monday 2 October 2023 for Undergraduate, WISC, University of Notre Dame, Amherst and Tsinghua students.
