Welfare Information

There are a great number of avenues where you can receive help and advice on a whole range of issues.

First you have your College Advisor and the many people at Kellogg – Fellows, fellow students and staff, as well as MCR events and the wider University.  We are all very happy to hear from you, whether your concern is small or large.

Junior Deans: Agne Gvozdevaite and Max Buston  – junior.dean@kellogg.ox.ac.uk The Junior Deans may be approached for any welfare or academic issue, particularly where a student is not sure who to contact for further advice. Whilst they cannot always solve the issue they can listen and provide good options to go forward with.
