Everything India & Indian subcontinent at Oxford

IndOx celebrates everything India and Indian subcontinent at the University of Oxford. We aim to capture the breadth and depth of India and subcontinent related activities at the University and share with the world at large.

Join the IndOx Network

We are building a network of researchers both in the Indian subcontinent and at the University of Oxford, collaborating within their own disciplines and across them. We also run a wide-range of events, and provide other networking opportunities, helping to create connections across the University and beyond.

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.

IndOx Funded Projects

Since 2019, with the support of Oxford's Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) and the Oxford Martin School, IndOx has funded a number of projects, research trips, visiting academics and cultural collaborations focussing on India and the subcontinent.
