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, PLEASE, 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.


For leaving residents of Farndon Court, with your permission we will pass Ray any forwarding address you have logged on My Oxford Online, so do be sure to update these details as needed.

Visiting College

In your first year after leaving (ie 2022-23), we would like to invite you and a guest to one Dining with Dinosaurs event. You will both be charged the guest price and should contact alumni@reuben.ox.ac.uk to organise your visit. Do remember please 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.

Secondly, on completion of the RSL, we will host a FREE dinner for our alumni to give you the chance to see our new home. Details of this will follow in summer 2023. Once we have moved, you will have many other opportunities to visit the College and we will keep you up-to-date in the termly newsletter.  As time goes on, we’re excited to welcome you back for student theatrical, choral and musical productions, and for sports matches, which again will be publicised in our newsletters.

Graduating

Degree Days

Reuben College has three degree days for our first graduating cohort:

Students can invite a maximum of 2 guests to their degree ceremony and celebratory lunch. More information will be communicated closer to the time.

Please be aware that you will need to wear full subfusc for graduation, and it is your responsibility to ensure you've booked the appropriate gowns for the ceremony. We'll be in touch with more details closer to the time.

For any questions, please contact alumni@reuben.ox.ac.uk.

Transcripts

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. 

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:

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