Support St Peter’s
St Peter’s is going from strength to strength with the help of our Alumni and Friends.
We have world-class tutors, outstanding students from many countries and backgrounds, and loyal staff. The St Peter’s spirit and sense of community is the glue. We have achieved a great deal given our limited means, but there is still more to do.
St Peter’s College, Oxford is a registered charity no. 1143166.
Donations to student support ensure the College is able to help its current students reach their full potential and complete their studies regardless of unforeseen difficulties, and attract new students regardless of their background.
The Keys to Success campaign looks to raise £6.25m, to fund:
- Philanthropic support for Oxford’s system of undergraduate bursaries (the best in the UK), for students from low-income backgrounds
- Enhanced financial support for graduate study
- A bigger fund for scholarships and prizes that either reward achievement or off-set some of the costs of field trips and other types of study
- Investment in the ‘student experience’ – music, the arts, sport, and careers initiatives.
Donations to this fund help to support Oxford’s precious and unique tutorial system. World-class tutors are our single biggest expense but our most substantial asset. Only 20% of our £1.2m academic wage bill is covered by philanthropy. Please either support a specific post or help underpin the subject/research area that most interests you.
The Keys to Success campaign aims to raise £6m, to fund causes such as:
- Creating an SPC Teaching Fund to underpin existing posts, especially in English, Law and Modern Languages
- Access to more stipendiary teaching resources.
Donations to this fund go to improving and maintaining student accommodation and college facilities, which are a central part of the college experience. We need to be in a position to build or acquire more rooms so we can house second-year undergraduate students, and provide more housing for graduate students to vastly increase our ability to attract exceptional students.
