Oxford University Polish Society is one of the biggest national societies at University of Oxford and the oldest Polish student society in the United Kingdom. Established in 1955/1956, the Society served as an important platform for the Polish political activism during the Cold War, uniting Polish academics and providing them with a platform to develop without political constraints.
Nowadays boasting around 200 members the Society keeps on integrating the ever-growing Polish community at Oxford and through its events it promotes Polish culture and history. Recent conferences organized by the Society, under an honorary patronage of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London, include the VII Congress of Polish Student Societies as well as Science: Polish Perspectives conference.
The Oxford University Polish Society has been operating under the official patronage of Prof. Leszek Kołakowski, Prof. Zbigniew Pełczyński (current Patron of the Society) and minister Radosław Sikorski. The activities of the society have also been supported by Prof. Timothy Garton Ash, Prof. Norman Davies and Prof. Jan Zielonka.
This year we are proud to celebrate six decades of the Society’s successful existence. To gather generations of alumni and current members, as well as affiliates, of the Society we are organizing Oxford University Polish Society 60th Anniversary Charity Ball on the 17th of December in the Sobański Palace in Warsaw. The main goal of the 60th Anniversary is to launch and promote our most recent initiative: the Oxford University Polish Society scholarship fund aimed to benefit exceptional Polish students at Oxford.
