Welcome

The Oxford General Culture Unity (oxfordgcu.org.uk) is a blog that frequently gives you updates about Oxford and its University. We’ll mostly post articles about revelant news that’s happening in town or about subjects like science, religion and education.

Even though we might share the same name with the Graduate Christian Union we are in no way connected to the official organization. This website is merely an informative blog made by enthousiasts to provide you with some open-minded ideas about interesting subjects.

As you browse through our website you’ll probably notice that we are huge fans of TED talks and infographics. Reading tons of boring texts day in and day out isn’t everyone’s cup of thee, that’s why we’ll try to provide a balance of relevant content both in text-form as well as in visuals and video. Please enjoy your stay!
