Our Projects

There are several challenges which we are currently facing in protecting the high standards of a Christ Church education. Rising fees mean that we need to offer more bursaries of higher value so that we can continue to admit the best and the brightest, regardless of financial background. In addition to this, existing tutorial posts increasingly have to be solely funded. To keep offering the best teaching and encouraging world class research, we are striving to fund the entire cost of the tutorial system and protect it forever.  

All of this means that the support of our Members is more vital than ever. It is imperative that Christ Church strives for financial independence so that our activities and principles are not compromised due to unsustainable funding. 

35% of our Members have made a gift to the House. Please consider joining them in safeguarding Christ Church forever.

"I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity of a lifetime that I have been afforded. I am fully aware of how fortunate I am to have attended Christ Church in an academic sense, and on a personal level, to have made many friendships that I know will endure." Christ Church Graduate Scholar
