Pembroke is a college within the University of Oxford which supports research and delivers research-led teaching. With a shared commitment to academic excellence, we are a diverse community with global impact.
Undergraduate Applicant Hub
Our College is an inclusive community where students live, eat, socialise and run a huge range of clubs and societies, as well as taking many of your tutorials. The student body, known as the JCR, organises activities and contributes to the running of College and even has its own Art Collection. Find out more on these pages, and we hope you’ll join us for a virtual Open Day.
Graduate Applicant Hub
Graduate students are a core part of our community, bringing a wealth of experience and academic variety. We provide practical support as well as the chance to join a dynamic interdisciplinary environment. Please take a look at our Graduate Applicant Hub and get in touch with any questions.
Our alumni are a key part of the Pembroke community and current students and academics benefit greatly from their involvement in College life. From careers mentoring to speaking at special events, acting as ambassadors and making donations, there are a myriad ways in which they engage. We have around 9,000 Pembrokians all around the world and in all walks of life, and aim to keep in regular contact with as many as possible.

Pembroke DPhil Student Named ‘Clinician of the Year’ at 2024 Bone Idols Awards
Pembroke DPhil student (Clinical Neurosciences, 2022) and consultant nurse Gerard Mawhinney has been named 2024 'Clinician of the Year' at the “Bone Idols” awards, a national awards ceremony hosted by the Bone Cancer Research Trust to celebrate excellence in primary bone cancer care and research.
My Sixth Form College took part in several of Pembroke’s outreach projects. I had the opportunity to take part in an essay competition which enabled me to explore a degree level topic in detail (in my case, genetic engineering). Through this, I came across the Biochemistry course and decided the put in an application. The rest is history!
The original reasons why I chose Pembroke have regularly stood out to me throughout my time here, such as the architecture, the engineering tutors, the halal food and the accommodation. Moreover, I hail from a small, homely town in Surrey so truthfully the life and community at Pembroke didn’t feel a world away from home.
I chose Pembroke as a postgraduate student for two main reasons. First, so many of its Fellows were engaged in the sort of research I wanted to pursue myself, and there are opportunities to get involved in discussions of their work.
I decided to apply to Pembroke after the open day – I had visited a number of different colleges but none of them had quite the same welcoming feeling, a feeling which was cemented again during my time at interviews, where I met many more wonderful people and was able to experience more of daily life in college.
We welcome enquiries from anyone interested in holding a conference, meeting or special event in Pembroke.
Our professional events team provide full support with the planning and execution of everything from formal dining to small meetings, plenary lectures to week-long summer schools. Our beautiful historic setting benefits from integrated modern facilities so you can have the best of both worlds.
On 29th June 2024 the College will celebrate its 400th Anniversary. Between now and then we are planning a global calendar of celebrations and preparing to share the College's strategy for the years ahead.
