The Society has no political or commercial aims and, although we are part of the Cambridge Alumni Groups network, does not act as a direct fundraiser for the University.An annual membership fee is payable, based on the calendar year, although those joining in the Michaelmas term are granted membership through to the end of the following year.The programme of events section below - and above all theprovide a fuller picture of what we do, but our aim is to provide a mix of networking, cultural, thought-provoking and just “plain fun” events, formal and informal, to match all tastes.As well as bringing Cambridge graduates together, the society also has a wider goal of promoting Cambridge in France and fostering links with other alumni associations, including Oxford of course, but also the French “Grandes Ecoles”, other UK universities and those from the United States.Thus, of the 56 Prime Ministers to date, 42 studied at Oxbridge, 11 did not go to university (most recently Winston Churchill and John Major), and only 3, Earl Russell, Neville Chamberlain, and Gordon Brown, went to other universities (Edinburgh, Birmingham and Edinburgh respectively).The Bristol and Bath Branch of the Oxford University Society was relaunched in 2016 with the aim of building a busy and exciting organisation with the chance to meet new people, catch up with old friends and provide support to others in and around the area.Members of the Society are also able to use the monthly events diary to provide information about the events that they organise or in which they are involved. Most members hold Cambridge University degrees, although membership is open to any person who has an appropriate connection with the University, which may include exchange students, research graduates and, of course, teaching staff.
