Oxford University Society Bristol & Bath

The Bristol and Bath Branch of the Oxford University Society was relaunched in 2016 with the aim of building a busy and exciting organisation with the chance to meet new people, catch up with old friends and provide support to others in and around the area.

The branch offers a networking and social platform, as well as opportunities to get involved within the wider community.

If you would like to be involved with the OUSOC Bristol and Bath Committee at any level or have any ideas on how we can grow OUSOC Bristol and Bath, please email the Secretary, Dr. Christophe Fricker, to let us know how you would like to get involved.

We are also keen to help our members share and publicise the things which are important to them. If you are involved in a project which you think our members would be interested in, be it a performance, a talk, a crowdfunding campaign or anything else you can think of, please contact us with a short description of your project and why you think it could be relevant to members of OUSOC Bristol and Bath.

Most importantly, this is your alumni society, so please let us know what you want from it.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our social events when it is safe to resume holding them.
