Why Pembroke?

  • In addition to teaching, our friendly and approachable tutors are also actively engaged in advancing their own research in areas ranging from artificial intelligence and autonomous robots, to the behaviour of materials.  All of your tuition is provided within the College, aside from specialised subjects later in the course.
  • In addition to the plethora of department initiatives such as Formula Student, Team ORlon, OxRam and the Women in Engineering Society, Pembroke organises events through the year which bring together engineering students across all years. 
  • At the start of the year, final year students present their “lessons learnt”, an informal yet informative ice-breaker, and at the end of the year they present their research projects, giving you an insight into what lies ahead.
  • Successful engineers need an enthusiasm for the subject, coupled with a strong academic record in maths and physics. It is also helpful to have had practical experience in solving real-life engineering problems. We look for applicants who have creative ability, and who will ultimately contribute to and influence society.

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.

This certainly made the daunting transition to University much easier and I felt settled at Pembroke almost immediately.The engineering course has been challenging and repeatedly pushed me to new limits, but I feel richer and more grateful for this opportunity with each passing year. In addition to the academic demands of my third year, I was elected as the President of the Oxford University Islamic Society, one of the University’s most active communities. In my final year project, I will be working to optimise a breathing-powered prosthetic which I am very much looking forward to.
