Everything India & Indian subcontinent at Oxford
IndOx celebrates everything India at Oxford. We aim to capture the breadth and depth of India related activities at the University and share with the world at large. We are building a network of researchers both in India and Oxford collaborating within their own disciplines and across them.
Oxford as a destination for undergraduates and graduates from the Indian subcontinent
The University of Oxford has longstanding connections with India, dating to 1579, when Father Thomas Stephens, from New College, was the first recorded Englishman to visit India. Ties have strengthened through time, with the creation of the Boden Chair in Sanskrit in 1832 and the arrival of Oxford’s first Indian students in 1871. The Indian branch of Oxford University Press, established in 1912, has a proud tradition of publishing its own distinguished scholarly list.
