Spotlight on Alumni

Oxford English graduates have progressed into careers in every sector of employment. Our alumni have become lawyers, managers, writers, broadcasters, producers, entrepreneurs, teachers, designers, fundraisers, novelists, accountants, chefs, actors, directors, management consultants, speechwriters, civil servants, opera singers, publishers, social workers, hedge-fund managers, and stand-up comedians. 

Some of our alumni have written short profiles to tell us more about their careers after graduating from the English Faculty. Explore the profiles below.

For more alumni profiles, you can also browse our Telling Our Stories Better online gallery. The gallery was created as part of a project which ran throughout 2021. It aimed to challenge misconceptions about who studies English and the career paths they take.
