The Oxford Guild

The award winning and critically acclaimed Oxford Guild is the largest university society in both Europe and the world as of 2015 according to The Times, Forbes, Milkround and the BBC and has been Oxford’s, the UK's and Europe’s largest and oldest professional society for decades since our foundation. Originally founded in 1897, now with tens of thousands of members and over 100 events a year, the Guild is widely recognised across the University and indeed both nationally and internationally as the leading professional society.

The Guild is a renowned Oxford institution with a long and illustrious history and today are one of the established, dynamic, active and professional university organisations in not just the UK and Europe but across the world. We have made a hugely significant mark over more than a century, with an unrivalled track record that has meant it has dominated the society scene. The Guild has been at the forefront of innovation, has led intellectual discussion and debate and has been the breeding ground for many of the world’s most successful people, kickstarting their prominent careers. Our well renowned heritage is our exciting future and we intend to continue to shape the future of the world in the years to come.

The Guild is often the first port-of-call for both students looking for inspiration, guidance and support, and to apply for internships and jobs, as well as companies looking to recruit the best students at Oxford and partners and guest speakers looking to reach out to and be in front of the very best and brightest. It is 100% free to join and being a member enables you to attend and receive weekly updates about all our offerings including our full range of events, services, resources, socials, balls, conferences and initiatives. (Plus much more!)

We have unrivalled global reach with unique access and exposure not just at Oxford University and its colleges and departments, but beyond that both on a national and international level. This cross country and cross continent coverage traverses borders and extends from Oxford to the UK to Europe to the rest of the world, enabling us and our partners to reach the most ambitious and very best and brightest all over the planet. This scale is made possible by our leadership and founding of the Collegium Global Network, National Union of Student Business Societies and partnerships with our Guilds at other universities including Cambridge and the London School of Economics (LSE), all of which provide enormous scope for both ourselves and those who work with us.
