Our Policies

Worcester College operates under a series of By-laws and Statutes agreed by our Governing Body. We also adhere to important policies that protect the safety and security of the College, our staff and our students. Most College policies can be found in our handbooks; for areas where we don’t have a specific College policy, we follow the University of Oxford’s guidance.


Worcester College handles a large amount of personal data, and we take data privacy very seriously. The College has published separate privacy notices which are applicable to the various groups of people the College interacts with and its activities which involve the processing of personal data.
