On 4 September GRASFI 2019 attendees had the opportunity to dine at one of Oxford's most beautiful Colleges - New College

Despite its name, New College is one of the oldest of the Oxford colleges; it was founded in 1379 by William of Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester, as "The College of St Mary of Winchester in Oxford", the second college in Oxford to be dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Built between 1427 and 1483, it is the oldest surviving purpose-built building for university use, specifically for lectures, oral exams and discussions. Today the School is used before graduation ceremonies and for other important university events.

The main venue for the GRASFI Annual Conference 2019 was the Examinations Schools of the University of Oxford.

Built between 1876 and 1882 and designed by Sir Thomas Jackson, this historical Grade II listed venue was created to house the University of Oxford’s examinations.

Situated in the heart of Oxford, it is easily accessible via a range of public transport methods or is within easy walking distance of many of Oxford’s landmarks.

On Walton Street, in historic Jericho, stands the majestic Saint Paul's Church.


Opened as FREUD in 1988 to bring the legendary cocktails of its sister café in London to the people and visitors of Oxford, this old church, with its hauntingly high ceilings and decadent stained glass, has, over the past quarter of a century, become the favourite meeting place of friends, families and more than two generations of university students.
