With widespread educational disruption caused by the pandemic, Christ Church is aware that current and incoming students may be finding it difficult to cope with the demands involved in adjusting to higher education.

From the beginning of this academic year, important new supportive resources have been made available to students, including a Study Skills section of the website, but in response to feedback from undergraduates, the House is keen to do more.

Working with the Oxford Study Skills Centre at LMH, we plan to provide training for up to three postgraduate students per year from different fields to receive training to run in-college study skills sessions for students from all subjects. These students will join a Study Skills Support Team, led by Postdoctoral Access and Student Support Fellow, Dr Ben Fernando. We would also like CSSC staff to run large-scale sessions in College and to provide specific support for students with additional needs.

Last year we opened a Covid-19 Student Support Fund to provide assistance for a range of activities for the JCR and MCR and are grateful to all of you who contributed. This fund remains open and we welcome further donations towards the educational support needed by our students post-pandemic:
