Class Act is the newest Oxford SU campaign, intended to support, represent and campaign on behalf of students from working class, low income, first generation, and state comprehensive school backgrounds, as well as care leavers and estranged students.
Although there is a lot of focus on efforts to help those of us from one or more of these backgrounds to get accepted into the university, the experience we have once we’re here doesn’t get the attention we think it needs. We’re trying to change that.
The campaign has gained the attention and support of students and academics alike at the university, and has improved access and student life for underprivileged applicants and students. We're bursting with ideas to improve the landscape for current students whose social, financial and/or educational backgrounds might disadvantage them during their time here at Oxford.
Our work over the coming year will focus on the common concerns associated with each of our focus groups, and on the more specific problems members of these groups can face at Oxford. During term time, we will be campaigning as well as hosting social and speaker events.
