Membership application

Application for membership of the Oxford Education Society

Should your application for membership of the OES be accepted by the Department of Education, the information you provide will be checked against your record in DARS (Development and Alumni Relations System). DARS is the University-wide data base which contains records and contact information of alumni, and others having a relationship with the University. If the information you provide differs from that on your DARS record, we will check with you to see if you are happy for it to be amended.

If you do not yet have a record in DARS we will verify your eligibility by other means (such as Departmental or College records) and then create a record for you. We will let you know when we do this.

For further information about the ways in which your personal information is held and used by the University please click here.

We use your information to provide you with information about OES activities and events.

Specifically:

  • Your DARS record will be added to the Oxford Education Society constituent group through which we communicate with all of our members.
  • Your postal address will be used to contact you should your email address become de-activated or we receive a ‘bounce-back’ message from an email communication with you.
  • We will not share any of your information except in aggregated forms for reporting purposes (e.g. number of members in each country, etc)

If you are an Oxford alumnus, you are able to register, create an account and update your details on DARS yourself here.

Membership of the Oxford Education Society is entirely free and is open to the following.

  • all current and past students of the Department of Education;
