Religion and belief

New! On 16 June 1871 the Universities Tests Act removed the last religious restrictions for scholars attending the University of Oxford. The University will be marking the 150th anniversary of the Tests Act through the coming year, and more information will be made available on the Opening Oxford website.

Students and members of staff will find that there is a wide variety of places of worship within the University and in and around the City centre. For details see the faith societies and belief group webpage.

The EDU’s equality calendar includes details of religious festivals for which staff might reasonably request leave.
