Life after Oriel

An opportunity to learn about where life has taken Orielenses.

'Life after Oriel' website feature

We would like to create a new feature on our website that highlights what alumni have been up to since leaving Oriel. Are you still using what you learned at Oriel today, or has life taken you in a completely different direction? We want to celebrate and feature the full range of post-College life including but not limited to careers, voluntary work, unusual interests, and balancing family life.

If you would be interested in contributing to our online profiles, please email our Alumni and Communications Officer, Bobby Higson ( with your answers to the questions below. Or you can post your answers to Bobby at Oriel College, Oxford, OX1 4EW.
