Welcome to OUHS!
We're so looking forward to revitalising the Society this term, with a host of exciting events! From thoughtful and insightful talks to fun and interactive socials, we have a brilliant term planned. OUHS welcomes students from all Faculties at every stage of their studies, undergraduate and postgraduate. We hope that everyone is able to find and engage with something that interests them next term.
The best way to keep up-to-date with OUHS is by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can also join the Society and sign up to our mailing list, to be the first to hear about all-things OUHS.
If you have any thoughts, questions or suggestions, please get in touch with us on social media or via email.

Oxford University History Society is a vibrant, wide ranging student-society, encompassing the second largest subject group in Oxford alongside thousands of students for whom history forms some facet of their course.
Most events - like our guest lectures, social events, and society cocktails - are open to absolutely anybody so long as you are a registered member or you pay the non-members entry fee. Those on our mailing list will receive regular emails reminding you of upcoming events and keeping you informed about society affairs. Alternatively you can visit our Facebook page or take a look at our online Termcard.
Our previous speakers in the last year have included Peter Frankopan, the author of bestseller Silk Roads; Dan Snow, noted BBC Presenter; and Lissant Bolton, the Keeper for the British Museum’s Africa, Oceania and Americas Department. In addition, through panels, we have explored a wide-ranging selection of topics from gender’s role in the study of history, to the need for a Black History Month. OUHS also organises social events every term; past examples of such events include Society Cocktails, Presidents Drinks, the Termly Quiz, Inter-Society Debates and our Annual Dinner.
