Supporters' Club options

Under our new plan, introduced in March 2020, there are three levels of involvement in the Supporters' Club:

  • Membership of the Club
  • Exhibitors at the Recruitment Fair (for those Members who wish to purchase a table)
  • Special arrangements for Members able to support us with donations in addition to the above.

The income we receive from the Club is particularly valuable because it supports a variety of activities in the Department that would be more challenging to fund through traditional routes. This includes supporting research students in need, bridge-funding a research idea when the delay in money from traditional sources might mean losing the researcher, etc.

Membership

Membership brings many benefits: for more details please see the main Club pages.

The annual fee for membership is currently £300 + VAT.  We keep this low to encourage participation from not-for-profit organisations and startup companies, as well as large enterprises.

Recruitment Fair participation

The Recruitment Fair takes place each autumn, and is a great way to talk at length with our students about career opportunities.  It is only open to members of the Club, but our space is limited and demand normally exceeds supply, so keep an eye on emails to find out when places become available.

A table at the Fair for one of the two days is £1,000 + VAT.

Donations

Many more successful or established companies are also able to make a donation in addition to the basic subscription. Some have compared the likely annual costs of recruiting Oxbridge students through agencies and other methods, and have felt that a larger contribution was appropriate here.  Others have simply been able to donate as part of their corporate social responsibility budget.  

Whatever the reasons, these gifts are particularly valuable to us and are greatly appreciated. Please contact the Supporters' Club Organiser in the first instance, if you might be able to assist in this way.

 

If you feel these prices would present challenges for you, please do get in touch. We may be able to help out, for example if you are a not-for-profit organisation or a start-up less than three years old.
