Alumni

Everyone who studies at Reuben is a member of the College for life. There are various ways for our alumni to continue to be part of our community in the next few years, as well as big plans for events and networking as our alumni base grows.

Please send any queries to alumni@reuben.ox.ac.uk

Keeping in touch

As long as you let us know how to keep in touch, you will receive a digital copy of the annual College Record, as well as termly alumni e-newsletters. We will also contact you about any alumni events that we hold. For news in-between times, please do continue to visit our website and social media accounts.

We will primarily contact you via email and may contact you via post or telephone. If your contact details change, or you wish to change your contact preferences, please update your details by logging in to your My Oxford Online account. You can view the University’s privacy notice for alumni, shared also by Reuben, here.

Visiting College

In your first year after leaving, we would like to invite you to one Dining with Dinosaurs event. You will be charged the guest price and should contact alumni@reuben.ox.ac.uk to organise your visit. Do remember do keep an eye on the website termcards to see what evening you want to choose, and give us enough time to process your booking – ideally, at least a week’s notice. 

You will have many other opportunities to visit the College and we will keep you up-to-date in the termly newsletter. 

My Oxford Card-holders are welcome to visit the College, but access is only possible Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, and must be pre-arranged with the college. Please email the Alumni Office, if you wish to arrange a visit.

Transcripts (and costs)

Transcripts

A transcript is an official summary of your academic performance and progress to date. It will only include final marks confirmed by the appropriate Examination Board. A transcript may be required by prospective employers or educational institutions to which you are applying. Find more information about accessing your transcript here.

The University of Oxford has recently developed a Digital Award Documentation service for providing degree certificates, transcripts and verification of degrees. This allows students and alumni to view, download, and print their electronic degree certificates and transcripts online, share a degree confirmation letter, and allow third parties (such as employers, other universities, and government agencies) to verify their degree status. This costs a one-off registration fee of £15 for unlimited access to this service. 

All degree certificates, degree confirmation letters and transcripts are now electronic, except for the following circumstances:

  • A paper degree certificate, which will continue to be printed for students at their degree conferral
  • Paper degree certificate re-prints for students and alumni, which will incur a cost, plus postage
  • Other exceptional circumstances, on a case-by-case basis

When Oxford students apply for further study, they no longer need to provide paper documents and can instead use this online service to verify their education at Oxford.

 

For more information, please visit the Graduation and leaving Oxford webpage. If you have any further queries, please contact the Degree Conferrals Office via edocuments.support@admin.ox.ac.uk. 

 

Additional Costs as of 1 August 2023 include (Please note that a cost uplift was implemented on this date)

In the longer term...

As the number of alumni expands, we will grow our alumni offer. We would love to hear what you would like the College to offer. Ideas include:

  • Theme-based gatherings.
  • A mentoring scheme which will draw on the diverse interests and expertise of our alumni.

If you have any further suggestions of how you would like to engage with the College and its members please contact alumni@reuben.ox.ac.uk.
