The NDORMS student committee is a student-run initiative bringing together the graduate student community within NDORMS. We aim to provide social activities and peer support for students at any stage. We further aim to provide a platform for students to present their work and broaden their academic horizons.


Student Welfare and Wellbeing

Student wellbeing is our priority this year. As a result of the pandemic and lack of social interaction, we are conscious that wellbeing must be catered for. This year we have a new student committee role dedicated to this mission, the Welfare Representative. We are constantly trying to find platforms and activities to improve student wellbeing this year. We welcome other ideas/ suggestions from students that may enrich student welfare and wellbeing.


We organise several academic and social events throughout the year.

As a result of social distancing protocols, we are not able to have most of the traditional events that occur in-person termly/ annually. We remain hopeful that some events may occur in-person later in the year. In the meantime, we are committed to organising social events that will enhance the social graduate student experience online despite several restrictions this year. Events for this year will mainly be guided by student's interests obtained from the Student Survey. Please be on the lookout for this year's socially distanced events.  

Normally, NDORMS Students events include:

  • Welcome events for 1st year students at the start of the academic year 
  • Yearly DPhil retreat with various career workshops and group activities
  • Regular social events including a termly student brunch & pizza lunch, monthly NDORMS socials (jointly organised with the PostDoc committee every first Thursday of the month), regular Pub socials at the Butcher's Arms, the annual NDORMS Christmas party and termly inter-departmental socials with different institutes across the Medical Sciences Division
  • If you have an idea for a new event, please get in touch with us


The final role of the student committee is to provide a support network for students and to make sure that students' views are well represented in the various departmental committees. The student committee further aims to provide a place for all students to voice any concerns in an informal environment and fully confidential manner.
