Take part in competitive events as well as more sedate pastimes, such as punting.
A great way to put your studies to use while at the School is to take part in academic competitions. Such competitions take place across the globe as well as some right here in Oxford.
Previous achievements include:
The MBA Tournament
MBA students can take part in the annual MBA Tournament in Paris, a sporting event that brings together students from top-ranked business schools around the world. This involves three days of sporting competitions and festivities, with rugby, swimming, table football, rock climbing and salsa dancing! Above all, it’s great fun.
As of 2018, Oxford Saïd are MBAT champions 2 years running!
Founded in 1839, the Boat Club is possibly the University's most celebrated club. Its most famous race is the Boat Race against Cambridge University, held on the Thames in London each year and watched by million of people around the world. In 2018, five of our MBA students took part in the Boat Race.
Colleges also compete against each other in a series of races known as The Bumps.
Oxford has been battling Cambridge on ice for 100 years now, with the Oxford team winning the glory in 2018's centenary match. Three members of our MBA cohort were part of the winning team.
The annual clash against Cambridge in rugby is also another highlight. Known as the Varsity Match, it takes place each December at Twickenham Stadium in South West London.
Cricket is a quintessentially English sport and a popular pastime at Oxford. Around 30 college clubs compete amongst themselves and against local and travelling sides.
What could be better than gliding down the river in a boat on a warm summer's day? The art of punting (propelling yourself along with a pole) goes back many centuries and it is an Oxford tradition. Punting does take some practice, though, so remember to pack some spare clothes as you will almost certainly get wet!
