How to Get Involved in the Oxford Union
Joining the Union Committee is a great way to make friends, develop new skills and get a behind-the-scenes look at Union events.
The below Michaelmas 2022 "Getting Involved" guide outlines the three main ways to get more involved in the Union: attending committees, applying for an appointed role, and running for election. It also points out the best people in each area to contact with more questions - please don't hesitate to reach out!
