Wallace Watson Award Lecture

The Wallace Watson Award is awarded to an undergraduate or graduate member of the College to undertake an expedition or travel of a challenging nature in a mountainous or remote area anywhere in the world. Wallace Watson (2000 Chemistry) was an undergraduate at St Catz, who achieved much in his short life, through combining determination with consideration for others, and success with modesty and humour.

Applications Open for 2018 Wallace Watson Award

St Catz undergraduate and graduate students are invited to apply for the 2018 Wallace Watson Award, which encourages students to undertake expeditions or travel of a challenging nature, by providing financial assistance. The objective of the initiative is to foster an inner strength of character, an appreciation of other cultures and a broadening of the mind, through helping to ensure opportunities for St Catz students to travel the world.

Buy the 2016 Oxford Almanack!

You can still buy your copy of the 2016 Oxford Almanack!

It is only the second time in the Oxford Almanack's 340-year history that St Catz has been featured and this time it is portrayed in a beautiful painting by Cathy Read. The remainder of the sheet consists of a calendar for the year, which also includes information relevant to the university, as well as, for instance, sunrise and sunset times. Our inclusion in this year's Almanack will, in years to come, mark an important milestone in St Catz history and is a real tribute to the College community.
