The Oxford University Africa Society (AfriSoc)
AfriSoc focuses on African students’ affairs at the University of Oxford. Our platform enables students interested in Africa to engage critically on core issues impacting our collective lives. We are a community of change agents passionate about Africa. Because we are concerned for our Students’ wellbeing, we provide student welfare support and foster social activities to improve the living experiences of African students in Oxford and beyond.
Prospective Student Mentorship Programme
In conjunction with the Africa Oxford Initiative, we support prospective applicants by attaching them to Oxford-affiliated mentors to boost their chances of gaining admissions to Oxford University. Each student undergoes a three-month mentorship where the mentor, usually an Oxford student or alumni, supervises the assigned student and prepares them for admissions to the top-tier universities like Oxford.
2022 Innovation Seed Fund Challenge
As part of the 2022 Oxford Africa Conference, the Innovation Seed Fund Challenge will reward Oxford students with promising research projects or initiatives related to alleviating the impact of COVID-19 in Africa. This project is funded through the office of the Vice Chancellor and will reward students with GBP 1000. Details to be released soon.
